Well, it is a shallow DOF, but it's on a big subject. Less than a foot of in focus subject!!! So, people are comparing this to the macro shots in the challenge. On a relative basis, this is pretty shallow, but I understand the drop off in front and behind is not what people are accustomed to seeing. It's okay.

Wow, one person commented that this image was mostly in focus. That's not the way it looks on my monitor. This image is only in focus in a narrow slice about where the axe rests. In front and behind that point, the focus drops off rapidly. I question the eyes and monitors of those who cannot see the focus falloff.

Last day of voting and the score is low. I'm thinking many voters really didn't carefully look at this image. Quick voting by inexperienced photographers.
