Row Boat: Depth of Field

There’s a very subtle difference to these two imags. The top image has the background as the focal point and the bottom has the boat as the focal point (so that the background is slightly blurred). I can’t decide which I like better. At first I was going to go with the bottom image but then I kept coming back to the top one and finally decided to post them both. Maybe others have a preference?

    The difference is *very* subtle if you keep your eyes on the green boat. But, if you train them on the tall grass in the forefront of the shot, you can see a distinct difference.
    I prefer the top shot. My brain lights up when things are a little “off” and it has to work a bit 🙂

  2. I also find something intriguing about the grass in the top image but then I kind of like the boat blurred in the background in the bottom image. Hmmm, maybe I should have made a third image where I merged the two images together 🙂
