Re: All Shallow DOF junkies: look and read here...
In reply to RoelHendrickx, Mar 13, 2014

I tend to agree with Roel's assessment.

Here is another perspective, since sometimes there is more than one answer to the question. You can also achieve subject isolation by using color contrast. The mooring post seems to have similarly gloomy color with the OoF buildings in the background, so you could shift the angle a little bit, so the highest part of the post isn't overlapping with the building.

I am not a flash person, but I believe you could also do a fill flash to lift the exposure of the post, so it'll stand out from the background. That's yet another way to achieve isolation without using shallow DoF.
