Congratulations for winning prize and no doubt the photograph is fantastic. However I wonder how the photograph would have looked if Building at the background would have also being brought into the focusing range. Any idea? #1299500

Michael Marsh April 28, 2005

Hi Sunil, thanks for the comment on my photo. I did also take another shot at a much smaller apeture (f16 I think it was) which obviously increased the depth of field to include focus on the house in the background. However I felt this distracted my eye from the main subject which is supposed to be the sheep.
Thanks again for your comment,

Mike. #1299526
