Re: New NEX5n: Depth of Field and Focus Question

Thanks for everyone's replies. I guess I wasn't aware of how close I was to the subjects which resulted in narrow depth of fields.

Here is a photo I took trying to see if I could get the foreground and background in focus using f16. Maybe the shutter speed is too slow at 1/100. I can't remember if the ISO was set to 100 or Auto and I can't remember if I focused on the tree or the Bluebonnets. The DOF calculator states I should have focus from about 2.5 feet to infinity yet when I look at the photo at 100% the tree doesn't seem that sharp.
