Ciao Dan!
Frumos punctul tau de vedere si foarte buna lumina!
Good work!
Salutari si numai bine!

Hi, Dan. Nice capture of a day for contemplation. The fall leaves and the serious mood of the two figures and a sombre cold day suits the title. I liked it. Cheers and TFS.

Exposure: f/6.3, 1/100 seconds
Tough call; what do you choose: motion blur or lens blur?
Obviously, there was little light there and if you went down to f/16 for a better depth of field, the exposure time would have been way too long and the persons would have moved.
What I would have done to have the foreground and the background tack sharp would be to take two shots at different apertures and blend them in Photoshop.
Just an idea…

Hello Dan,

the more I look at the photo, the more it pleases me. I like the low point of view and the "line-game" of the fence. The evening-sun gives splendid colors to your photo. Nice work !

regards, Pat.

Hello Dan.
Interesting shot. Well managed perspective. I like your point of view and details on the picture as well.

Hi Dan, your composition using a low POV is clever because the floor is interesting due to the fallen leaves and the wood lines.
The rail helps enhancing the perspective.
The rule of thirds is not put into practice here and it could improve the image, taking some sky out, I´ll do a workshop with your permission to see if you like it.


I really like this one - great low POV, beautiful light and colours. I initially thought that rule-of-thirds had been ignored here, since the horizon line is at the 1/2 point - but then I realised the vanishing-point is 1/3rd of the way across the frame, so it still meets the rule!

Bonjour Dan

J'aime beaucoup cette photo prise "ŕ ras du sol", cela lui donne une belle perspective.
Belle compo
