Hi Jever68:

Excellent shot. I didn't even see the spider web until I zoomed in fully. You have to love the FZ200!

Thanks,
Rudy

Any PP - or just straight outta the camera?

A little. Resized bicubic and a little sharpened.

Looks good.
Perhaps I may be interrested buying a successor of the FZ200.

Very nice and sharp. DOF, however, is usually referred to as "shallow" or "deep".

This helps separate it from other photographic terms. "Low" would be a true misnomer for your use of shallow DOF which IMHO is quite high, quality-wise.

"Narrow" is the opposite of "wide", as in wide angle lens.

I believe "narrow/wide" and "limited/great" are often applied to DOF - just as "shallow/deep". "Low/high" - not so much.

Is it any wonder why those new to photography feel like they are entering the 5th dimension? That is why I try to keep my photographic terms unambiguous and consistent.

As I said, I try. I don't always succeed. A shallow depth of field (focus) would look "narrow" only if viewed from 90º to the optical axis.

Just some more grass...

Don't ask me why, but laying in the undergrowth flashing away at night just seemed like a good idea at the time

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright Leica 35-420mm lens that's this good: http://www.flickr.com/groups/panasonicfz50/pool/show (slideshow always good). With the FZ200 performance so good, I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao has triggered the update to the FZ50. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1033&message=42366095
