Our fourth and final club competition of the year and the theme is "Shallow Depth Of Field". Your photograph can be on any subject you wish, colour or black and white, but your image should make creative use of a "shallow depth of field".
A basic definition of depth of field is: the zone of acceptable sharpness within a photo that will appear in focus. In every picture there is a certain area of your image in front of, and behind the subject that will appear in focus. Some images may have very small zones of focus which is called shallow depth of field.
Points scored count towards the Photographer Of The Year competition.
Please see the current competition rules for information on how to size and name your images, and we also have some general tips, and advice on mounting your images.
