    Can you open up the lens to get the background out of focus?

    if you're referring to the first pic, because of the lack of distance from the side of the garage to where the front door is...there's really no room to zoom in so im stuck with the lens zoomed out to 17mm (this was with the 17-50mm tamron). also used 2.8 which is the widest the lens will go. :(

    just not a very good spot for it, but due to the rain it was the only place i could be while keeping the camera safe and me dry.

    Yeah, that's the shot that I meant. It's unfortunate that you didn't have a bit more space.

    I can't believe that I'm doing this because I promised that I never would. However...

    My first pack cost me 18 cents in the machine. Machines never took pennies. You'd put in two dimes and there would be two pennies in the cellophane wrapper. Fifty years of three packs/day adds up to roughly a million cigarettes and I can honestly say that I enjoyed every one of them. I quit (cold turkey) four years ago not because of health concerns but because of cost (I live in New Jersey). I have since learned that I have emphysema, which is incurable and it will probably kill me rather painfully. I don't use oxygen (yet) but I can't walk twenty feet without stopping for a rest.

    I have an excuse. When I was young, we didn't know any better. However, kids your age do. Don't be a fool.
