...mosses and fungi. :)
Took this two nights ago. I went out because the fog was coming in and the moon was up. I was hoping that the combination would lend itself to some good shots, but the timing of the two didn't work well until it was too dark. So I did other things instead, including this.
I have been asked on more than one occasion if I always use tight focal planes. The answer is no, but I do tend to favor them when shots have a singular defined subject, or multiple subjects in the same plane. I do this because that is how your brain interprets the data being sent to it by your eyes, which makes for a more natural looking image, especially when you see them in person in larger formats than you do via computer.
I highly encourage people to visit art museums in person rather than just browsing galleries online for just that reason. You are missing a very important element of the work if you are not seeing it first hand!
