I was searching for a state park and saw this along the way. It's mounted on a pole and seems to be a weather vane. It moves with the breeze.

This concrete artwork wall was also located in the same parking lot as the airplane.

On December 23rd, I saw a group of swans and took a few photos. Then when I stopped on December 24th, I was really surprised to see this one floating with its wings out. It reminds me of a Lenox swan. And even when I returned on Christmas Day, it continued to float with its wings out. I've never seen any of the swans in my area doing this before.

Maybe he is trying to attract the ladies. It is getting to be that time of year.

Your PA set is remarkable. Loved the landscapes but the bridge shots show me that I need to go to 'depth of field school'. All do really. Doped and done beautifully.

If you use a browser, there are EXIF add-ons you can use. Exify is one that was suggested for Nikonites - if it is available for your browser. That will let you know what settings were used.

Depth of field differs between focal lengths. For example, when comparing 24mm vs. 135mm when both are photographing a subject that is 30 feet away while using the same aperture of f/7.1 in this example, the 24mm will pretty much have everything in focus. Yet the 135mm will only have around a 7 foot depth of field that is in focus.

Wide angle lengths have more in focus than telephoto lenses. Of course, the aperture also contributes to depth of field. f/1.6 has a very shallow depth of field while f/22 will yield a greater depth of field.

How far away from your subject you are also contributes.

Overall, depth of field is dependent upon:

1. Focal length used
2. Aperture used
3. Distance between the camera and the subject.

I used the app Simple DoF Calculator for these images (can't remember how much it cost, but it was a one-time purchase). There are also free apps available.
