Posted by

This was taken in a neighbor's yard. I used a 70-300mm lens to get the slight blur in the pagoda.

Great DOF draws the attention of the heron..is it me or does it have an evil glint in its eye? Hope you feel better soon.

Outstanding clarity Jack. The DOF and colors in the background are spectacular. Very nice yard art with symbolic or feng shui value.

I like this shot better than the B&W version you posted, before. The composition and colours are more attractive, here.

Wonderful DOF here with your focus on the crane and the color in the back of the pagoda is so warm giving the image an overall embracing feel.
