Nice range of examples with wide aperture. You clearly have a good eye.

I have an eye for knowing which photos to post, and which photos not to post. 

I haven't directly and systematically compared the effects of small aperture diffraction vs. large aperture/shallow dof softening, so thanks for your observations.

I have to say that I've not done narrow aperture photography myself, due not merely to the effect of diffraction softening, but also due to the lower shutter speed which would require the use of a tripod much of the time.

Thanks for starting the thread; it generated a good many insightful and helpful comments. Thanks also for the compliments on my galleries. All thoughtful comments pro or con are appreciated; improvement is a never-ending challenge.

I very much appreciate your post that inspired this thread, as well as your subsequent comments in this thread.  Cheers!
