Challenge: Three Techniques (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Nugget Point, New Zealand
Date: Oct 20, 2009
Aperture: f/6.3
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/320 +/-
Galleries: Landscape, High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Date Uploaded: Oct 25, 2009

This wasn't shot for the challenge but I thought I'd try and shoehorn something in. I did discover that my cameras date is wrong (but still within the challenge times)!

I entered this an hour before the deadline and I think I should have been more careful about the three techniques I listed. While the aperture was only 6.3 the shot doesn't show that the DOF isn't that large (I guess it depends on what I've got the lens zoomed at as well).

I'll be happy with any score above 6.

OK OK! 70 votes and 11 comments all telling me it's a Deep DOF, not a Shallow DOF. I get it :)

Gerry, I think you made a typo. It's "Deep DOF, not Shallow DOF". Still, you did really well considering ;)

I must have liked this one as I didn't give you a 1. You should try this again at twilight for the slow shutter approach to the waves.

When the horizon line is one third from the top ,it's a classic "RULE oF THIRDS" .
Also , it's a "DEEP DOF" than "SHALLOW DOF"

I think you actually captured a deep DOF. Your rocks in the background still have alot of detail. Stunning photo anyways.

Great photo, and I can see the centered composition and leading lines, however this is more of a Deep DOF than a shallow one to me. I will assume that you meant Deep DOF and will score it accordingly. Good luck.

This really doesn't look like shallow depth of field. My eyes are lousy, but looks pretty deep to me. (but then again, I don't focus well on small things.)

Gorgeous photo but doesn't really show "shallow DOF".

Not very shallow, but deep DOF will do ;-)
Very nice one! Lots of depth and very strong leading line. It sucks you right in. Welldone!

don't see how this is shallow DOF (might be your intense sharpening)

Centered Composition, check. Leading Lines, not so much for me, but implied. Shallow DOF, no way. This is sharp from infinity right up to the very foreground. Did ya type the wrong one in?

Beautiful photo, but looks more like a Deep DOP to me. A little over sharpened or dodged on the middle rocks I feel. Still I love the shot. 8
