Spring in the Public Gardens (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
I have always loved shallow depth of field - in portraits, in Nudes, and in landscapes...but it is not all that common to make an image that really works will with a larger subject...in this case, the spring buds on the tree were just the thing to focus on!

Easily the most traditional shallow depth of field subject would be macro images - in this case, spring flowers covered in rain-drops, set against a soft, diffused background. A large aperture, combined with a long (150mm) lens makes this kind of image quite easy to realize!

The last image continues to embrace the shallow depth of field motif - this time focusing on a magnolia blossom set against the large pond at the Public Gardens.
