    Good concept, but I think it would be even stronger if all the letters were in focus. :thumbup:

    i want a 50 1.4! :drool: i like it, the lighting, pp editing, and the empty dining chair in the back totally gives an eerie feeling to it!

    But you know the rule, that the first photos posted using a new fast prime lens must always be taken wide open, no exceptions.

    :lol:

    On a slightly more serious note, I like the shot but tend to agree that a slightly larger DOF would have been appropriate.

    I love this...I think the DOF is perfect...demonstrates the working of faith, and it's value. When you take a "leap of faith" you pour out your heart into something just enough to believe. The DOF here demonstrates the "Just enough"

    I like the shot a lot even with the shallow DOF. Only suggestion is possibly reversing the letters so FAITH leads back to the chair while keeping the F in focus. Just a thought to try.

    Thank you for the comments everyone i appreciate it. i really like the shallow dof for this shot. i wasnt really feeling the pics i took where the letters were all in focus...and i did take a shot with the letters going the other way but it looked strange since we like to read left to right..

    I like it man!

    I think it would be boring if all the letters were in focus. I mean, who can't take a picture with everything in focus. It's the creative focus points and interesting DOF that makes it. Keep it up!

    :eek:)

    Did you try it with the F in front reading left to right (since you are correct that is how we read)?
