Well, it's just not a very intersting picture to begin with -- But yes, you can use this technique in other pictures to make foreground elements appear out-of-focus and create a framing for your subject.
This picture doesn't really do that, the foreground is just out-of-focus.
They're pines and pine cones, not very interesting to begin with... but if you really must shoot it as your subject, find a way to make it interesting.
Not everyone can be a dzmedia you know.
put up a pic of the original plant, i have an idea if what it looks like is what i'm thinking...
Only other pic I have with that plant in it.
...can u take another one?
IMO, the spot focusing + DOF is more useful in a situation of say....a crowd of faces and you want to focus on one that happens to be a few back, or cars in a row, but you want to frame the 3rd (for examlpe) one back while keeping the others in the picture
Oh....Like I said, I'm a newbie and I'm testing techniques and stuff like that.
you should try and take the picture again with the sun comming from the back to create a rim light, just be careful with glare, but it'll make it more interesting
