Hi Barry, Thanks for your nice comment, appreciated.
Well, for me No. 1 does not work. My eyes hunt for something to grab onto and find nothing due to the lack of DOF in the foreground and background. It also lacks any focal point, leaving me somewhat frustrated wandering about looking for something.
Maybe my eyes are just old fashioned and resist new concepts.
Hi Harry, I understand your frustration, apppreciate your critic.
I was thinking, had I photographed this scene with unlimited DOF, this would be just another post card scene at the best. When I took this photo, surrounding areas were quite a bit misty, fogged up. I saw this narrow pathway with imaginery S curve in the woods, also saw beautiful wildflowers...it was like dreaming. I tried to re-create what I saw with the shallowest DOF, as if I was in half asleep.
