My favourite camera feature is a narrow depth of field, the lower the fstop the better. I love the way the selective focus can transform an everyday scene into something mysterious, and magical, it's about suggestion, and a hint of detail for me.

we've a number of these rainbells in our back garden, which when filled with rain dip, causing them to return to this position and chime against their neighbours.

We'd had a few days of sub-zero weather, which had left a lot of things in the garden covered in rim frost.

    AHHH MY DEAR AGREED the f-stop is overlooked in a lot of my peers settings the lower ther better every word i identify with doll, Yes the hint of detail involving dof for me makes substantial difference in most photographs between ordinary and extraordinary unfortunately so many concepts are lovely but lack the depth that in my personal view could have made the photo unbelievably magnificant love this is a great example.

    I like your work here, the DOF is very effective and accomplishes exactly what you want the viewer to see. It is what gets left out that has the most power! And this image possesses exactly the power you were wielding here. Very, very well done.
