I was going for a walk along the river and liked the contrast between the nature shots and the everyday trash.

Very nice shot here, Christine.
Simple idea, but great technique behind the shot and you effort of getting on your belly here to get such a low viewpoint has paid off.

Strong focus on the subject matter, and your choice of aperture to get such a shallow depth of field with rapid fall off in the fore and background has added the impact the shot needs to tell the story.

Despite such a shallow depth, we can all see what the background is.

Good work.
PS Welcome to the site.



Bom dia Christine,
This shot proves two things: that you are a Photographer of verdadee, and that also is committed to preservation.
I hope you too much. Be welcome to TL.
Cheers from Brasil,

Hi Christine

Welcome to Trek Lens.

Well done for seeing this as a photo opportunity, and, for getting such a low point of view (which adds to the appeal of the photo as does the shallow depth of field.)
I look forward to seeing more of your images.

Hi Christine,
Well done, the low PoV really makes the shot.
Nice to see another Kiwi on TL
