Trying out the new DSLR
Posted By: siric, 07-09-2008, 05:09 PM

Just got my K200D about a week ago and am trying to shake off the rust after 15 years of not being behind the viewfinder.

Is the background too busy?

Opinions please?

f/11 1/60 ISO 100

Damn Brit

I don't think the background is too busy but I think the composition is too centered and I would have got lower down to change the perspective.

IMHO the background is too busy and too sharp. You should get closer and user a larger aperture (smaller depth of field). And switch to vertical format.

Yes, onboard flash was used.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will take some more shots tomorrow and repost.
