I prefer the colours of the first shot but the comp of the last
The glimpse of sunlight you got for the first sure helps the colours.
But I prefer the longer DOF in the last to the short one of the first.
So your way of life - you mean to say - is the rough outdoors?
There is rough generally: outdoors and indoors... Simply stony and full holes and traps
actually, this kind of pictures is hard to take. DOF is an issue. where do you focus, what is the f-number, how could one get a 100% sharp pictures from this angle? Tilt and shift lenses? f20? Who knows how to do this properly?
What for You need that information? Tell me what You feel, when You looking on this picture? (f4,5 no tilt lenses) It's not a competition I think.. ;> but I'm not sure...
Ah, I should perhaps have said: this kind of pictures is hard to shoot. sorry for my english. I tried to do similar things as well: go really deep and get the front and the back in focus, max DOF. This only in case there is no real subject, just the view. Like on the beach e.g. sand grains in the front, sky or people in the back. My question is general: what is the best way to do this, and where do you let the camera focus. Technique is all I am after, no competition.
All right.. If You want to make sharp everything (front and back), You must max close screen in Your lens. If You want to have sharp front, You must max open screen. It is general principle.
