Thanks Eric, I did a tiny amount of sharpening but otherwise as shot. I am surprised at the DOF!

Some of my very best photos were taken on a box brownie and a Kodak 44a - very simple cameras where the only control was cloudy / sunny :lol:

The smaller the sensor- the greater the dof at any given fstop.  It was the same with film  ....big film - shallower dof. I often worked at f16 with medium format to get the same results as f8 on the Nikon slr (actually I was using Canon back then :sssshh:)

My wife has always preferred taking shots of plants (ie pseudo macro) with Compact cameras (now phones) because of their smaller sensors.
