Nice picture, again.

I was wondering if you have taken some pictures with the depth of field closer to an edge of the picture on a wide aperture like this.

Here is something that I tried.

This picture was not cropped, and the focus is at the bottom. Sorry for bombarding you with my stuff, I just thought, you being an engineer, might entertain such like techniques.

sridhar .. no worries about technical stuffs ... keep em coming ... :)

I've actually taken load of photos with the aperture wide open...

One sample that I could remember is this:

U can see clearly the shallow DOF with the focus very near to the edge of the photo.

.. thou using the "cheapo" 50mm f/1.8 lens... it still produces nice bokeh ....

oh .. the photo's not crop either .... :)
