    Unhappy What am I doing wrong?


    I have been trying every combination possible to get a shallow DOF in this photo..
    I know it is not the best composition but no eager volunteers that will be still I need to figure this out!

    Using Pentax K20D with SMC DA 18-250mm lens. Used tripod. Have to stay indoors as it is currently -30c with lots of snow in my neck of the woods and just a tad to cold for 'practicing'.

    I have been shooting lots in Auto and thought I would venture to the manual mode but did not realize how hard it would be. Obviously I just do not get it.

    Could someone give me some tips on what I might change to get results. Would appreciate any help at all.

    This is a first time post so I hope that I have linked from photobucket properly and the image is visible..[/IMG]

    Thank you,
