Summer shot of the weir on the South Saskatchewan River at Saskatoon. There's a tiny pelican flying by on the lower right of the picture.

Atmospheric. Somewhere in Middle Earth, I presume?

You're probably right. I live in the middle of a film set. Here's Fin Raziel's island from 'Willow', one of my all-time favourite movies.

Did you just focus close on nothing to get the blurring?

It was shot on a 28 mil at about f2.2 and I focused on the tree branches, either above or on the reflection in the water, I can't remember. At a focusing distance of about 3m the dof was about 1.5m so I had to focus on a specific part of the picture that I wanted in focus. There was a little mist rising from the pond which helped.

Interesting.  Did it take a few shots to get the focus you wanted?

No, I knew the effect I wanted to produce and the fine tree branches were an easy target. I did try a few shot focused far and near, but as is often the case for myself, the first shot was the one I wanted.

^ I like the vague reflection on the water, it looks metallic.

Wonderful shot, ckwaller!

Wish I could see a larger version without that massively intrusive watermark, though. I know people like to protect their work, but when the watermark totally kills the image, I honestly wonder what the point is. ;P
