Dear Dyxumers,

The vote counting is finished! I am very pleased to announce the winner of DPC #264 "Focus is overrated":


"Rainy Eve Sunset" by glad2badad



The Honourable Mention award goes to these two photos:

"Metalicaqua" by KoBra64






"Small Grasshopper, Big World" by mikey2000






Congratulations to the winner and the HMs! Their excellent shots demonstrate that less focus can be more.
Thank you all for participating and voting in this DPC.
And don't forget to enter in the next DPCs!

Congrats to glad2badad!! Well deserved winner with this great shot. And of course an applause to the HM's KoBra64 and Mikey2000 as well. Together these three make an excellent exhibition with very diverse interpretations of the theme

That's a lot of blurriness!    It's no surprise that "Rainy Eve Sunset" came out on top - it's a brilliant example of why focus is overrated. Congrats also to KoBra64    (And thanks to anyone who voted for my pic, one of the first I ever took with my Sigma 35/1.4 )


Another good thing for this DPC was the wide level of participation - there were loads of great entries.

Now, don't forget to get an entry for DPC266 (lines, repetition, patterns)

Hey! What happened?! This is pretty awesome. :-) There were many entries in this one that could have ended up being elevated on this page. Don't know what to say, except Wow, Thanks!   

Both of the other two shots here (by KoBra64 and by mikey2000) would make outstanding prints.

Great shots & deserving winners. (And I say that even though I agree with glad2badad that so very many submissions were outstanding.)

Well done & congrats.

Congratulation to the winner and the HMs. Excellent work.
