Mossy Tree Trunks
Lens: 16-35 Photo Location: Maple Ridge ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 3s Aperture: F16 
Posted By: Jimbo, 07-22-2012, 05:12 PM

Three I took this morning. Decided to hop into one photo for the hell of it. I always get told from my daughter, "there are no pictures of you" This has been one weird summer with more rain then we usually get in the fall. I am sure summer will arrive soon. JIM

I like that second shot a lot, the way the mossy branches move away from the viewer but remain in focus all the way. Where is Maple Ridge?

#2 looks great, the composition is spot-on IMO.

Thanks Bud. Still haven't hit my goal. Getting tougher the last 20. Cheers JIM

Thank you for your kind words. It took about 6 shots to get it right. Ended up manual focusing in the end. Maple Ridge is in Britsh Columbia just east of Vancouver. JIM

Another vote for #2 but that is quite a handsome guy in the first one. Congrats on the weight loss. Not an easy task for sure.

Well I'm glad somebody's getting some rain. We sure ain't. I also find using manual focusing is necessary when going for extreme DOF. I kinda like the 3rd one but I've been out of sync for awhile.

I kind of like the third too. You are correct on the manual focus improving the DOF. You have to be dead on. I would like to have a shift and tilt lens!! Cheers JIMBO

Hey buddy - nice shots as always. You've got the look of an intrepid explorer in the first one. Nicely done and lots of fun.

The first one needs a bare chest, soft focus and some glamour glow. #2 is a great shot!
