Drifting Focus

Tried a little different technique on this shot.  I would say on about 95% of my landscape shots, I am shooting at an aperture of f/16 or higher.  In this case, I wanted to separate the drift’s edge from the sunset by utilizing a very low aperture of f/2.8.  I really like how this separates the image and really draws your attention to the foreground.  May have to try this out more often.

  1. I thinks it’s a very effective use of the shallow DOF.
