I've tried fielding some depth before. Sometimes ..it is great, sometimes it isn't.

I've had that too, some good some not. I love that bottom picture because of the detail you can see on it. What kind of camera did you have...can't remember? I found a little trick to help with the depth of field. Believe it or not I just discovered it. I have like nine focusing points. I can switch it to just focus off of one point and for a small object with a small depth of field it works great. Not sure if that makes sense though. Does it?

Yes, Sonya that makes perfect sense. I should have switched to one viewpoint. I would have liked that single claw to have been much better.
Mine has 9 also.
DSLR Camera is: canon xti.

In fact I think I hit it by mistake (not realizing what I'd done) and took a number or pictures out of focus and I was puzzled over why I just couldn't get the sharp pictures that I used to. Hee hee. Well I think I now know. Duhhhhh felt rather stupid. But I've been sure practicing using it now depending on what I'm taking pictures of. But I'm luv'n the discovery.

Being that you have a Canon then yours would be very similar to mine. Do you know how to do it? If not read that manual...or ask me and I'll try to explain. ;) Oops reading your words again...sounds like you know how to do it? Like you, I would have preferred having the claw in sharper focus, but that's me.

2 things I always forget, well sometimes 3.
the spot focus, the ISO, and auto vs. manual focus.

OK - here's my attempt.

I only had my point and shoot with me but it seemed to work OK. I just wont tell you about the other dozen or so that had to be trashed when I saw them on screen. Clearly I need more practice.

What an interesting looking flower. I don't think I've ever seen one of these. It's a really good depth of field shot, Jan.
