The focus is on the rib cage. This is a pretty shallow depth of field for this shot. :judge:

Oh and by the way... :welcomeclan I'm glad to see you posting. :woohoo:

Yup the focus is indeed on the ribcage with a wide open aperture by the look of it, this could have been a winner if you had focused on the head or closed down to say f8 ish, the lighting is a lovely golden color, lets hope you get another chance. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

When you're shooting with this wide of aperture, it's extremely important to get your focus correct, and generally speaking that means focus on the eyes. And I agree that more depth of field would be good for this shot. I really like the location, subject and lighting.

Do we all want to see it in focus, because that's what we expect to be achieved?

I kind of like the softness here. I've seen plenty of sharp horses already.

Mmm i like the composition I suppose, but the blurriness is just distracting. It's not artistic enough to make me think it was done on purpose. It only makes me focus on the weeds. :X If you meant to make it out of focus, focus on the area in front of the horse so we don't see anything in focus... or just take a sharp photo and add blur in photoshop :whistle:

The white balance is also off. The white on the horses nose is yellow not white, which means you made a mistake.

Though still at least you know it's a horse.

Sugimoto did a series on soft architecture. All out of focus.

Gives you the same sensation, don't you think?

Namaste greets the eternal spirit. Isn't that what he captured in the horse? Like Sugimoto captured in his soft architecture? Not just the façade, but something longer lasting -- and much deeper

To me its a nude version of the horse. An idealized horse, not just a naked horse.

BTW found a better link above.
