Timing is everything. As in this amazing image of the exact moment a young boy breaks open a piñata. The photo’s focus really makes the shot:
The way the image is focused on the candy right before it falls makes this picture one in a million! The photographer used a 1/2000 shutter speed at f/1.4 and ISO 100 to take this shot with his Canon 6D. He feels he got lucky with the shot, since he was actually using burst mode to take a series of photos—and this one was just perfect.
My opinion is that he nailed the settings perfectly; the shallow depth of field allows you to focus on the candy alone, and to make a very crisp image even though there was a lot of action going on at the moment of the photo.
