    \$\begingroup\$ I always find it distracting when too much of the foreground is out of focus, even when there is an in focus point. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Yes he was still for a reasonable amount of time and I also got lucky to be able to shoot him before he took a lonngg jump! \$\endgroup\$ Mar 2, 2011 at 7:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ These shots are especially hard, I really respect reverse lens style, and understand the difficulty. One common trick is to take the shot from a different angle(overhead in this situation) so that the first focal plane is the one in focus. Obviously this is not always possible though. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I think the foreground being out of focus works rather well on this picture. Looking at it makes me to scratch an imaginary itch on my head. Wouldn't want this to greet me at the front page. Brrr. (And because the photo made me feel so, I had to upvote this.) \$\endgroup\$ Mar 3, 2011 at 10:02
