Beware of trains!

More narrow depth of field stuff - a very wide aperture blurs the background.

In this picture I used the Sigma 50mm 1.4 lens wide open on a Canon 1DsII. The Sigma is the best 50mm lens I've used for wide-open sharpness (including Canon's f/1.4 and f/1.2 ). Unfortunately, it can be let down by unreliable AF, but if you get a good copy & double check focus by bouncing on the focus a couple of times, you'll be delighted by the results!

I converted this shot to Black and White as I felt colour detracted from the deliberate stark contrast between the warning sign and the background.
