    I have taken these pics in the "A" mode trying to learn the depth .. my next assignment would be in full manual where every aspect will come into play.

    Thanks.

    Your focus is alright on 1,2, and 4. You missed it on 3 though... what F stop were you using ... you got the dof down in these shots...imo.

    ^ +1

    Watch out for "the rule of thirds" in the first two shots. Especially #1.

    I like #4 the best. It's got some nice bokeh going on in the background.:thumbup:

    you did pretty good with dof the first 2 i would have played with the rule of thirds and the one of the rocks i think the dof is a little to shallow because the rocks are a little blured

    The one thing you forgot (that I can see) is to find an interesting subject. A boring old rock and some pine needles just don't say "hey, look at me". Get out and try and find something with a little more interest or take the shot of the boring object and make it interesting. There is a great post on here where you are to find 3 thing within 10 feet of you to shoot. Take a look at it and you will see some interesting ideas.

    That's a good point, but I also think it's okay to practice on things that are mundane or uninteresting just to get a feel for things like DOF. I can't tell you how many pictures I've taken of an empty water bottle on my desk at different apertures just to see the difference. :p
