    A very little I just shot these to see what's possible.

    No depth of field



    DOF 1



    DOF 2



    It should be noted all my photos are shot in normal def mode. There is a HiDef mode but eats up memory.

    I like the colours in this one too. Apparently, this is the only place where they grow rice in this spiderweb layout... or so the guy who took us to this vantage point said. Flores, Indonesia

    They claim that this plane shot down 19 American planes

    Away from the computer at present, but from memory, it's a MiG 21 in either Hanoi or Saigon. They claim it scored 19 victories

    Michael... I was looking for something else tonight and that cat photo you took made me take a closer look at this image. I shot it in a back alley in Dubai.

    Sometimes a relative lack of colour is dramatic. A sunset in the Empty Quarter - the large desert out behind Dubai

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    This photo just popped up on my FB memories from 5 years ago. It was quite an opportunistic shot... I was in Melaka, Malaysia and I'd just switched to my 80-400 lens when this old lady strolled down the opposite side of the road and past this small painted wall. This was taken at 400mm IIRC
