:: Leica Forum Challenge 57: DEEP FOCUS ::

Dear All,

The theme for this Leica Forum Challenge [57] is " Deep Focus ".

The idea and sample pictures were generously provided by Paul (Paul20).

"Deep Focus" from Wiki:

Deep focus is a photographic and cinematographic technique using a large depth of field. In deep focus the foreground, middle-ground and background are all in focus (sharp). This can be achieved through use of the hyperfocal distance of the camera lens. It is the aperture of a camera lens that determines the depth of field. Wide angle lenses also make a larger portion of the image appear sharp.

Its a challenge to Leica photographers who love their fast lenses and creamy bokeh to stop down and shoot deep.
So less Christopher Doyle and more Gregg Toland ? What do you think ?


The submission period starts from today Tuesday 10 and closes Monday August 6 at 21:00 UTC.
You can post up to three images in each gallery: Competition and Exhibition.
