It is not unusual to use a large aperture to focus on a subjectz to get a narrow depth of field and a pleasant background. A variation on the theme is to keep enough of the background in focus so that one can guess what it is, even if it is out of focus. This is a great technique to show the size of crowd, exhibit etc. Here I chose the hedge as my subject and fields beyond as the hinted background. I prefer the shot in Black and White but have included the color version for reference.
