Weekly Challenge #456 -- "Deep focus"
Posted By: aaacb, 04-25-2019, 09:41 AM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #456 -- "Deep focus"

I thought I'd do the opposite of the previous challenge, so I'm looking for photos with large depth of field. I'm on the move this week so I'm not going to link to my own examples, but you may find inspiration in some of the movies listed here Deep focus - Wikipedia

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

The challenge will run until midnight Thursday, May 2nd, whichever time zone you are in.

1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Deep Focus Dog

Taken early morning on a K-S2 with an old 17mm fish eye: SMC Pentax 17mm F4 Fish-Eye Reviews - K Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It's not tack-sharp throughout the scene (and the dog has motion blur, he was running all over the place), but there's not much in the way of bokeh.

Thanks all for posting. Since I won't get time to judge this until Saturday, let's extend the challenge one more day until the end of tomorrow if there are no objections?
