This is because at wide angles, I'm not even blurring any part of the image even at f4.
Because I don't want to shoot at f/11 or above.. diffraction makes my images kind of soft

It wouldn't be an f/11 challenge if f/8 was allowed, now would it?

I'll make a thread here soon.

Why not make it a "wide depth of field" challenge? Many other factors influence depth of field besides aperture. A portrait taken with a full frame camera at f/11 will have less things in focus than a landscape taken with a point and shoot at f/2.

cause the name of the challenge is "Sub50hz's f/11 Challenge" not " Sub50hz's wide depth of field challenge"

but on a serious note, it is probably the easiest way to define wide depth of field is to set minimum aperture setting and let people go at it vs. subjectively judging what is narrow vs what is wide.

wide depth of field doesnt even make that much sense honestly. i dont understand where people are not getting the part about the f11 challenge. it does not specify digital vs film or crop vs full frame or wide vs telephoto. yes it is true that a P&S with a much smaller sensor will have a deeper DOF than a FF camera. i dont know many people that are comparing FF portraits to landscape P&S shots, and on that same note i dont know many P&S cameras that are going to be taking landscapes at f2 anyway. not sure why you would want to and i doubt the camera will do that in auto anyway.

this is not a depth of field challenge its an f11 challenge. you are able to get shallow DOF at f11 if you focus on a subject that is really close or have foreground elements that are close and out of focus.

i think some people are missing the idea behind this, someone with time should find the original posts where this challenge originated so that it might shed on background on what we are doing.

This makes me think that an f/11 challenge is in order. How many of you can create a wonderful photograph without annihilating the background straight into Blurtown, USA?
