Leaf it out

Everytime i've journeyed home from work over the past week i have been confronted with a blanket of leaves on the green opposite my house and i thought, 'perfect place for an autumn photo'.

Armed with both my 50mm and 55-200mm lenses i went over and started snapping.

Ive always read how focal length can affect depth of field (how much is in focus) but have never experimented.

The first photo was taken at 50mm with an aperture of f/1.8.

The 2nd photo was taken at 200mm f/5.6 and although the composition is slightly different and the image is edited differently colour wise, the red leaf is roughly the same size in both images and and the depth of field is shallow and similar in both images.

Lesson over for today...................dare i say LOL!
