Thanks tiny! I usually keep a "polarizer" filter on my lenses, since I'm really bad a recapping and I'm frequently on dusty situations.
As for the shallower focus, I assume you mean getting closer to the subject? I see how those darn pilings are distracting. I did remove a few things from the background and foreground (believe it or not)! I'm not that great at it, but I try! Hah Posted via Mobile Device
