Depth of field

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Depth of field im­pacts on all types of pho­tog­ra­phy, but is very ap­par­ent when shoot­ing gar­dens. See the dif­fer­ence be­tween the Hot Shot and this im­age, taken sec­onds apart and with the aper­ture be­ing the only dif­fer­ence. The Hot Shot was taken at f/2.8 and the sub­ject is iso­lated by the blurred fore­ground and back­ground. This photo was shot at f/6.3 and has a greater depth of field, ob­vi­ous in the more clearly de­fined shapes in the plants sur­round­ing the cos­mos. It looks busier as a re­sult, and the im­pact of the flower is lost.
