I'm going to come out and say I'm not sure what you're trying to do with this photo. I like the textures and shapes/shadows of the brick as an abstraction, although I'm in 2 minds on the DOF.

I was trying to get the bricks in focus, but due to how low the bricks were to the ground I didn't want to lay down and get my shirt dirty.

So I pointed the camera down at it, focused it, then measured the distance with my hand and layed the camera on the ground. I figured that as long as the actual distance didn't change I wouldn't need to refocus the camera, thus I could avoid having to look through the view finder and thus having to ruin my shirt. It didn't quite work out though.

Origionally I was going to use it as a desktop wallpaper.

It seems like you've learned that at close distances, the DOF is shallow and even slight movements of the camera or subject can throw it out of focus.

If the shot didn't work out (as you said), with the subject clearly and unintentionally out of focus, and you know why it didn't work out, then why did you post it?
