    "the depth of field (the distance from the lens for objects to be in focus)". Not so. An acceptable, though subjective definition:

    The distance between the nearest and the furthest objects that give an image judged to be in focus in a camera.

    AH, yes Volodar, I stand corrected, none the less, the depth of field in that photo on in question is VERY SHORT.

    I see the children are well represented.

    Plus I always enjoy looking at rope rigging.

    I wonder if they send the kids through the bore for cleaning and inspection?
