Tiny little feather, blowing in the wind, stuck on the tip of a blade of grass. Could've used more DOF to get more feather in focus but then the background got really busy. Tradeoffs.

Great DoF. The feather fits so well with the (wonderful) green background

What a great find, and good timing to get a shot of it before it blew away. I'm fighting the "trade-off" the past couple of times out for this challenge myself. I agree with roz; this subject works well with a shallow DOF.

yep .. i know all about trade-offs .. but i dont usually mind when the subject is a bit shallow dof .. and bits are oof .. i think it adds to the beauty .. its more a creative than practical approach .. thats the best way i know how to express it .. hope you get the drift ...
anyway .. i really like how the little feather is hanging on .. for dear life ... lol .. to that blade of grass ..:)
