Hi, logging on today I saw your photo taken in Autumn of the leaves on the tree (receding diagonally into the background). Totally agree with the change in exposure value (? excuse me, real beginner at this, still learning the jargon -- by doing so you focused just on the front branch, eliminating some of the distracting background?). What were your thoughts on changing the form of the image, maybe shaving a bit from the sides? This is NOT a criticism or a recommendation, just interested in your thoughts.
(always trying to learn more)
Thanks for your comment on my album pic Chris. It is just along the road from me. Nearly froze getting the shot - with my now gone Pana FZ7 on zoom
Thanks for the visit and comments! Thought it was about time I became a bit more active here so I'll try and contribute to discussions etc also. I agree the photos look so much better on black - wish we could change the background to black or dark grey on flickr - maybe one day! Hope all is going well with you - always a big fan of your photography
