Focal point


I took this photo about a year or so ago. This spot is located on a dead-end road, not too far from my office. On this particular day, I was playing with depth of field and my focal points, as I wanted to see what view I liked best. I find it interesting how simply changing the focal point changes the entire feel of the scene being photographed. In the first photo Quiet Rail,

I was attempting to capture the sense and feeling that the guard rail continued around the curve for ever and also a general feeling of peace and calm.In the second photo Grasses on the rail,
