Hi Mike! That wasn't my defensive voice that was my confused voice.

for one thing when taking a shot of a single flower I thought you wanted a shallow depth of field to blur the background? so if this shot had a lot of depth of field you're saying that the flower looks more 3D because of that? . . . . . . .

Errrrrrrm . . . . if you now understand sensor size v focus depth and, especially, "all other things being equal", could we just leave it there for now?

Re "wanted a shallow depth of field to blur the background", there is a common misconception that shallow focus depth is always a Good Thing.

But for at least 50% of what I do, I need shallow focus depth like a Hole in the Head, I just want the whole of a given target to be in focus and I don't care about the background.
