    Thanks, Iggy. I have to admit that playing with photography is very therapeutic for me. Takes my mind off things that are not so pleasant in life. It provides a creative outlet and helps me cope with day to day bull crap. So I take all the time I can, when I can.

    So, I think I know what "selective focus" means and I think it has to do with highlighting your subject by using a narrow depth of field. But does it have to be "in a crowd"? Does my entry below qualify?

    Lovely shot Andrew!
    Iggy your shot works for me though it's unconventional to my eye. Usually the selective focus is from foreground to background but in your shot it's from left to right...no rules though, all good.

    found these when clearing out some shrubbery to make way for a new wood fence in our backyard, thought they might make an interesting subject for this assignment.

    I'm not sure I understand the difference. That's one of my niggles about our assignments is that I sometimes don't always understand what we are supposed to achieve. With the "no rules" option I can enter anything that I think is cool but what I want to know is "am I achieving the assignment?"

    shot this with my nikkor 60mm macro lens at f2.8


    Andrew: really nice colours and composition

    Iggy: cool capture - side to side, front to back or only in the center with foreground and background out of focus, relax and have fun with it.
