    For this week I thought I'd get you using those fancy pants fast lenses of yours to show me some subject isolation using shallow depth of field.

    The photographs must be your own work.
    • Be creative and have fun.
    • You may only submit one photo per contest.
    • Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    • The contest runs for one week, starting NOW!
    • At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
    • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).
    Here's an example of the kind of thing I mean:

    I like this picture all except for the top my daughter is wearing in it. It buttons up the back and so in this image looks weird... Looks like she has it on back to front.

    A shot where I tried to focus the attention on the flamingos by using the blurred foreground as a frame.

    I like to isolate elements of my subject. I call it isolationception...actually I just made that **** up.

    No fancy pants lenses here, just my trusty old 24-105mm walk-around lens at f/4.

    Are you looking for actual fast aperture or is the general look enough (with focus work)? Just trying to decide between some photos so clarifying the rules of the contest :)

    As long as the subject is isolated then I guess that would fit the brief.

    I said crap, not frightening and confusing.

    Decisions, decisions… I have bunch of (in my opinion) good ones that would fit to the topic. But I think, I'll go with this one:
