put the aperture on F2.0 and leave it there!

Hi,

Yesterday, when I looked at my pics from the afternoon, I found a burst of pics from my dog with almost identical photos, except for the aperture setting (and the obvious consequences ;-). Of course, I know all the DOF comparisons with boring objects, but now I had something from the real world.

And while it is obvious, that the one at f2.2 looks more artistic, I am not completely sure, which one I like more.

What do think? Is it a clear case for you? Do you have similar comparisons, where you feel unsure? Would be interesting to see other examples.

Thanks for watching, please feel to C&C.

5D + 135f2

f2.2

f4

f10

Cheers,

Christoph
