Yes, cameras will do that to you! I've had the same dilemma. But I have decided that even with minds of their own, cameras are able to focus better than I can.
my camera had a mind of it's own also, these are great, i like the sharp and blur together.
My camera has a mind of its own sometimes too. haha. I like your photo. It's quite interesting and it fits the theme perfectly.
Auto-focus can be a drag. I like each individually too.
Nice phot looking through the rusty gate!o
Creative you! That is one large sculpture. I like your thoughts of two-in-one :)
I always tell myself to never argue with the camera, it wins every time. And I think the middle shot is a winner.
I can see your intention... Alas our cameras sometimes seem to make their own choices :)
welcome to FMTSO! I love the second shot!! love the depth of field.
