I understand what you are saying about the live view but most of my pictures I take now are in live view, sometimes I use my tripod for landscape pictures, no one here looks or laughs at me some of my friends have P&S camera also Nikon DSLR we are all learning together when we meet sometimes my friends tryed to convince me to go Nikon but went to Canon, Because I like Canon.

Unless you use a solid tripod every time you are using the LCD as a viewfinder, your images are often going to suffer.
There's simply no way that one can use a DSLR as if it were a point-n-shoot camera and hold it nearly as steady as when using the viewfinder normally (camera fairly tight up against the face), holding the camera with the right hand, cradling the lens in your left hand, and locking your elbows into your sides as part of holding the camera. That hold simply cannot be done when using Live View mode.Also, if you use the camera like it's a point-n-shoot (like the two images above in your post #237), you are almost definitely going to have folks laughing at you from time to time.

seriously what is your point? I am seriously confused?
Don't be confused I am only asking for information on the DOF as you know what my gear is, I just want to learn more and what do you use in the f/numbers to take flowers, landscape, people or children face, also on night what do you use? I shoot in AV most of the time, but some members suggestions was to use M, I also like to take water falls I have tried before in TV mode but it didn't look good. I still have the pictures if you like I can upload them here.
