    Right isn't the question. This is a beautiful shot for a shallow dof. If you wanted a large dof, the entire image would be in focus.

    Great image, I like the dof.

    dpolston is right, for this particular use of DOF there really is no right or wrong, just did it create the desired effect. From here I would say it did.

    DOF is more commonly used to separate a subject from the background but when the background is the subject that principal goes out the window. :lol:

    With this use of DOF the facet that makes or breaks it is the focus point that the DOF originates from and that looks fine to me in this image.
