2006-11-13 - Into The Wake

Sometimes a photo can go wrong but still turn out better, or at least more interesting than expected. That was the case with this shot - it may be a little hard to see in the resized version but the wakeboarder is completely out of focus while the wake in front of him is in focus. I could pretend that was my intention but the truth is, it was a focus error that I only noticed when I got home. At first, I was a little disappointed but when I thought about it, I realised it is actually quite a lucky shot. Downsizing images tends to give the effect of greater depth of field a bit so the contrast isn't as obvious here but viewed at full size, it is quite eye-catching. The question is, does it work as an image?
