Garden dynamics

Photo Information
Photograph of my neighbours back garden - shot with old glass Miranda 28mm 2.8 - I found depth of field very tricky - presume focussing on a middle element and then stopping down as far as I could was the way to go? - any tips?

Very nice result. The older glass can sure get the colours!

I would focus about 1/3 into the shot, say the pile of stones.

With a 28mm, you shouldn't need to stop down tighter than f8 to get everything sharp in a shot like this.

thanks Mac - that's exactly where I focussed to - re the tip about F8 - I might try another shot and not be paranoid about stopping it down for sharpness to compare - it will have to stop raining first though!
