Not really. That's why there's 'view camera' or large format photography. Where one can alter lens plane and film plane. Swing, tilt, shift..all these are possible.

For more information: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...-to-focus.html

In SLR one has to use a Tilt/shift lens.

Rudraji,Thanks for the links. I will read it up
would be nice if you can say whether i have analyzed this right.
Ihave marked in parallel the areas in focus. NOw in the background left i have marked in round an area in the leaf that is in the background. Relatively this area appears to be sharper than the area ihave rounded in the foreground leaf or Is this som e trick my eye is playing?

aaahhh.... dont do that buddy.

I got your point from you first post it self. I guess this is due to "compression effect" or what ever of a telephoto lens.

The second finger from left is actually way back than the 3rd and 4th one. It is actually slightly bent and in the plane of middle section of the leaf. I don't remember exactly where was extreme left leaf was...

Regarding the pink colour. Yes, even the small bushes are getting the fall effect and are getting ready to shed off. This was taken 2,3 days back. And now the top portion of the bush is almost bald.

Another one for the day...

I liked the blue sky and moving clouds, but not sure if i have left too much of open space above the peak.

@gkrishn, sorry about marking your images. Apologies. I just wanted to find out from Rudraji whether i analyzed it correctly.
The compression effect you are talking about is called the D.O.F which naturally shortens as the focal length increases. Its the least at the telephoto end of your lens.
I like your misty picture. The contrasting trees in the foreground are a bit jarring with an otherwise brilliant composition.
As @samurai san would ask. Is this reflecting what you saw with the naked eye?

Thanks. yes the trees are distracting. Got to make some goof up right.... And your crop was better.

The fundamental benchmark of any photograph is our memory of how our eye saw the scene that we clicked.
If your picture faithfully replicates the scene as your eye saw it . That itself is a major feat given the capabilities of the super duper camera that god has given us all beats even the most expensive 30,000 dollar 35mega pixel medium format DSLR.
I was just asking if the scene in the picture is faithful to what you saw it in person? thats what Samurai San keeps asking

Good one torqy. The tint suits well.

ISO 200 & above is not giving good results in FZ50, especially on long focal lengths.

Hi friend,
Little bit of cropping for a better composition can do make your shot more appealing, I tried, hope you donít mind,
