Somebody obviously ate their photographic Wheaties this morning. This is a very nice way to photograph the contrasting leaves in this plantlife. Not very much could bring drastic improvement, so go for the little things, like a slightly larger depth of field. You can get that by forcing your camera to use a small f stop (16 or higher).--Chris

lol...you made me laugh really hard. thank you. I appreciate all of your comments very much...actually look forward to them. Gotta start somewhere. And I know this is going to be a stupid question but what do you mean by slightly larger depth of field?

There is a very slight fuzziness to some of the back leaves, which means your camera (or you) focused more on the front, and your depth of field didn't stretch far enough from the front to the back. It is possible that the bush moved to produce this effect, but I don't think that's the case at 1/100 of a second shutter speed. The way to make your depth of field bigger is to make the f-stop smaller, which means it's a bigger number. I know, it seems a little confusing, but the developers of photography a hundred years ago made it that way to keep certain kind of people out of the trade, and that way they could feel special. (P.S. I suck at history, obviously! Smile )--Chris

my camera was the culprit. it seems to never want to focus on what I want. There are the boxes in the view finder, and it will focus on something to the right, when the middle box is set on a subject...? does that make sense. Is it my lense? I don't understand...this is why i might need to take a technical class on this...can you help..or am i not making sense. lol

You should be able to set your D50 to single area spot focus and only use centre focusing selection. The focus area selection can be locked in place on the D70S, I should think the D50 may also be able to do this. Your handbook will explain. Hope this helps.

...I just checked my camera, and It will not lock into Single area focus! Frustrating.
