    Taken today, I see these interesting shapes and textures every morning in the bathroom and today I thought I'd actually get around to seeing how they look on camera. I wanted to keep the depth shallow to diffuse the background and help break up some of the lines.

    Thanks for looking.

    Interesting, and in part totally sharp, textures here. To me it's just a pity that the amount of in-focus elements covers exactly half your frame, and the amount of out-of-focus elements almost exactly the other half. It feels (to me, just now, while I'm looking and commenting) as if impact might have been stronger, had about two thirds been in focus...

    I think I am inclined to agree with you LaFoto. I was listening to some podcasts that were saying don't be afraid to go out of focus or very shallow depth of field. But looking again this might be a little too much :)

    Thanks,
    Peter.
