Re: Respectfully....

I am not sure what you learned with your experiments. First, you said that you cropped them and you did not say how much. Cropping changes the apparent DOF. Next, what you posted initially is near macro. Fine, if this is what you are shooting but very misleading if you want to get an idea of DOF when shooting portraits or landscapes, etc.

Learning from examples is kind of OK if those examples are well chosen but the funny thing is that choosing them well requires to know more; and then you are not learning from examples only. On the other hand, if you have rich experience, you are likely to see enough examples and hopefully you will be able to draw the right conclusions from them... This is not what you are doing here though.
