Andy's Angles: Depth of Field

This is a photograph at the same time, place and angle as the one you saw here yesterday.

Big change.  Foreground focus.  Background blur, perhaps a bit overdone.

I've experimented with the technique before, with limited success.  It worked a little better on this trip.  It's amazing how much a little blur can enhance a photo, and take your eye in the right direction.

I've read of ways to accomplish the same thing through photo editing software, and I might try that down the road.  However, my camera has all sorts of settings.  I might as well learn them and do it the right way.
