I am gonna really practice today to widen my DOF...I have so long been stuck in "fast shutter speed" mode...time to broaden my horizon and learn more about aperture settings...which btw I am still trying to grasp the concept of. I think that is why my landscapes or shots like these never reach their full potential...(in my opinion...are JUNK!...lol)

Thank you so much for your feedback...It definitely was very informative and I learned a lot from it! I really am grateful!
While you are at it, try a variety of shots from extreemly shallow DOF to very deep DOF.
However, for the shallow DOF make your focus point right at the front of the frame instead of part way in. That way the eye doesn't have to search before finding something to focus on.
You also may want to leave off the conversions and other effects until you feel you've mastered the basics. One step at a time.
