What can I say I really brain farted on this one. When I saw DEEP I was think just the opposite. As most of you noted in your comments.

Extremely shallow DOF- opposite of the challenge.
06/13/2004 09:13:55 PM
Needs light on the subject to stand out from the background.
06/13/2004 12:50:16 PM
I'm sorry, this is shallow depth of field. 3

This is shallow dof. You need to step up the aperture, for example f/8 (or higher), to get a deep dof.

Nice photography. Everything should be in focus for this DOF challenge
06/10/2004 03:12:33 PM
very out of focus, needs macro
06/10/2004 03:50:18 AM
Really little that is actually in focus.
Depth of field shallow, not deep.
06/09/2004 02:02:27 PM
the DOF seems pretty shallow here
06/09/2004 01:20:16 AM
deep not shallow
06/08/2004 06:40:34 PM
This is Shallow DOF.

These are lovely blossoms. We call this pineapple guava. We have three trees in our back yard. I am afraid though that there is not a lot of depth of field in this picture.

Opps this is SHALLOW depth of field. LOL, this challenge is for deeeeep dof. Live and learn. Don't forget to use Levels to correct your colors. And Curves (or levels) to get more contrast.
06/07/2004 08:14:24 PM
This seems to me to be a shallow DOF
06/07/2004 07:46:47 PM
shallow dof does not meet the challenge
06/07/2004 06:32:23 PM
This is using shallow depth of field--the background is blurred. Deep DOF is when everything is in focus to infinity. As a macro it is decent. The background could be blurred quite a bit more. Perhaps a vertical composition or a square crop would have suited the subject better?

nice but lacks dof.
06/07/2004 05:53:34 PM
Macro shots are very difficult to obtain Deep depth of field. This would have benefitted from a smaller (higher numbered) Apature. Even some of the 'bulbs' in the floweres indicate how shallow the depth of field really is.

Nice photograph, but I have a few thoughts:
The lightly colored flowers would stand out more against a dark background, probably leaves in this situation. The highlights to the left of the flowers actually pull the viewer attention away.
I think this is an example of shallow depth of field becaue the leaves are clearly out of focus.
06/07/2004 12:31:49 PM
focus seems to be problematic
06/07/2004 10:45:39 AM
dof is pretty shallow here and the flowers seem a bit oof. I do love this for the nice colors.
06/07/2004 01:27:28 AM
The picture is rather flat and I notice movement in the flower. Also this is a fine example of shallow DOF not deep so I have to vote you down.

Nice macro, but to be truthful, I don;t see this as deep DOF at all.

looks like there is a lot of blur to me.
