Today I thought I would try something different ... and photograph a scene that obviously should have some depth of field in a manner that is totally out of focus. (The pole should be in focus and perhaps the building in the background not or vice versa.)
What I find interesting is that when I full screen'd it the first time, my brain tried to get my eyes to bring the image into focus but it didn't work. I'm curious if it is just my brain that does this (because there is memory of what it looks like with focus) or if it (brain tries to tell eyes to focus on something that they cannot) happens to other people too. Maybe it is because there's not an entire pole in the image, therefore telling the brain that it is "close"? (I do know how close I was
This type of scene is somewhat distinct from being just a little bit out of focus - the entire image is effectively "bokeh".
Curious about the feedback of others.
