Boat Dock
I shot this during a Tidewater Camera Club field trip to the Delaware seashore. I was looking for something that I might enter into an upcoming competition with the theme "strong depth of field." I wanted to use the leading line of the dock to guide the viewer back to the boats in the background, but I also wanted a strong element in the foreground to "anchor" the shot (pun intended). I don't know how well I accomplished my objective.

Darn, I was about to use that anchor pun until I saw that you beat me to it! Well done Roger ;-)

I really like this shot because of the construction that you mention in your description. Somehow having that rusty anchor resting so precipitously off the edge there tells a story that isn't quite coherent, but is entirely compelling. Its just an interesting photograph from front to back and therefore I would say that as for DOF, yes this is strong!

My only suggestions for additional editing (for your competition) are to sharpen the whole thing a little more, and maybe consider a slight and very subtle vignette. I believe both features would enhance the effective DOF you want to highlight here.

Very unique shot Roger, thanks for sharing it!

I really like the image and wondered...did you set this up or just pop into your vision and you snapped the picture?    Whereas I also see what Patrick is saying, I was also wondering a little opposite...about softening the image?   Give it more of that dream vision?   Either way is good and great shot.

Thank you for your comments, Richard.  This was a "found" shot, I did not set it up at all.
