    Taking a cue from Rob

    I shot these daisys. I have two crop variations and would love opinions as to the preferred choice among our TV viewers.

    Not a true crop comparison because of the apparent shallower depth of field in #2, but I will go for #2 since there are fewer distractions from the daisys, which is what you were shooting. The daisies are a little softer in #2, though - but just looking at the crop only, #2 still gets my vote.

    I hope this wasn't a test !

    An interesting bit of wormification! I prefer #2 as there is less distraction. Did you use flash for these?

    I can see a wormification competition/challenge on the horizon...

    Sorry, Ron, they are both the same image with a simple crop and reframing. No flash, Rob but I did make use of a handy piece of white cardboard which I used as a reflector. Let the wormification games begin!

    Thanks for the explanation, Chris. I said 'apparent' difference in DOF because I suspected there was something involved that I didn't fully comprehend. I had never noticed that cropping could cause a loss of apparent DOF or sharpness. Is this because a short focal length was used?

    By the way, what exactly is "wormification?" I can't look it up right now because our internet is down and the iPad won't open up another browser window ... at least I don't know how.

    Thanks again.

    I would guess they mean a "worm's eye view" of things.

    #2 is better.

    A worm's eye view indeed...very much in line with Jiroising or having a Marshallesque similarity in a reflective work...we make up words as we go which given the international nature of this forum, probably isn't such a good idea.

    Shouldn't that be Marsh-mellow-esque?

    But it does make one think, which is usually a good thing - I think ...
