Sorry, I don't like this photo, the "light-post" (?) in the middle of the trees just ruins the image, a wider aperture would have helped to just focus the trees and through the background out of focus, people in the middle of the photo also helps to ruin the image. Try again if the snow-fall repeats.

Christiano,thank you for taking time to view and give a constructive criticism on my attempt to document the recent blizzard. I'm new to photography for about the last nine to ten month's, and from the little knowledge I attain since using the camera and reading the many forums, is that, you don't achieve much shallow DOF. But I'm very willing to learn and would appreciate any tips you can offer from that wealth of photograhic experience you have.

Hi Kerland, thank you for understanding my comment as "constructive", that's what it is and that's what I always try to do. About DOF when you see that the aperture is the maximum you can use and still some of the background is focused, try to focus on the foreground so the last thing focused is the object you want. Remember that a wide aperture (f. 2.8, example) gives you a much shorter DOF than a small aperture (f. 22, example). Have fun, start reading a good magazine like Practical Photography and you will soon and in an easy way improve a lot your techniques.
