photoblog image fields of yesteryear

fields of yesteryear

So, opinions please! what do you think about the church being out of focus - this was deliberate on my part, and I get that it is up to the owner of the picture what they want to do, but generally, is it better to have everything in focus?

I, personally, like images that have a shallow depth of field. I think this is really beautiful!
This is really beautiful Sarah!

By doing as you have done you literally bring the focus of the picture onto the poppies in the foreground. I like it, it's a delightful image Sarah

You have focussed on the poppies, which is what you intended, and very fine they are, Sarah
This is fine Sarah. The poppies are the main subject and the shallow depth works well.
NO! Otherwise I can't show any...This is a cracking shot, Sarah, I like the way it fades away.
This idea is totally acceptable. I often take several versions standing in the same spot: church in focus, poppies in focus, everything in focus.

Your picture tells me, it is about a field of poppies. The church, trees and sky add a positive feel. This is an excellent image to portray remembrance on such a day. With everything in focus, it would be an tourist type "I have been here" type of picture. So, yes - it is up to you, indeed. Still, you want to convey something with a picture. If it is a remembrance (or something in that vein) type picture - you passed very well. If it is a tourist type - you failed.

Since it was deliberate on your side - you passed very well smile
