Selective Focus - or too thin DOF?
Lens: Panagor 90/2.8 + reversed A 28/2.8 Camera: K20d Photo Location: home ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F19

Selective focus is our theme of P52 this week. If you want to see the results, or want to join (welcome!!), visit P52-3-6!

This photo, with selective focus I'd say, was shot using the Panagor 90/2.8 1:1 macro + a reversed Pentax-A 28/2.8. It's not cropped, and the portraied bug measured about 3 mm....

I love this photo! Great colours, nice and simple setting, but I'd say, too thin DOF ... I find my mind wanting to see the creature more clearly.

I love those colors, the sharpness of the in-focus parts, and the bokeh. The textures are fabulous, too.

I agree, it would definitely complete the photo if more of the bug was sharp. It's a great capture though! I need to get more into macro

It's a captivating image: that thin, thin, very thin DOF makes me curious, makes me wanting to see more "in focus". It keeps me looking at this photo.
