This erratic boulder was the primary subject I wanted to capture this weekend whilst up on Twisleton Scar.
For this shot I deliberately opted for a short focal length to create some depth to the shot.
Cheers for looking in, hope you've had a great weekend too,
Solid but teetering right on the edge. Well captured in a lovely bit of light........Sandy
Some stunning light there Paul, hats off to you for the longer focal length too - you know it something I want to try more of.
All that said I'm not completely "sold" on the shot, why? well theres too much FG Bokeh (if you crop just above the first tuft of grass it seems to be more harmonious). The rock is too dominant - partly due to its size in the frame, partly down to the OOF foreground your eye just zooms straight for the juggular, and stops dead. Maybe a bit more of a hint of the landscape behind would help to add intrique.
Don't stop trying these - and continue posting - there hard to get right, but it will be worth the continued experimentation.
(P.S Is that near all the trees, looks remarkably similar to one I got thats still sitting on the hard drive, tho with a boring wide angle perspective )
Cheers as ever for your considered comment Nick. I've got ones with a greater DoF and less Bokeh Nick, but they weren't quite what I wanted to achieve. The shot for me, is all about the erratic the rest of it is purely context/dressing, hence its prominence and size within the frame ... whether it works for you [and others] is out of my control but I am pretty happy with how this came out on the whole so we will agree to differ [again] this time
Can't remember the actual focal length of this one so will update it when I get home.
Yes, it's near the trees but up a couple of levels. Damn cold up there first thing yesterday too.
(Marked your comment for CC too)!!!
Well worth going large on this Paul shows the light and details well.
Comp works for me at that view
Big on impact and I like the narrow dof.
Cheers guys ... not exactly setting the world alight on here though, so maybe Nick was right [this time]
Sorry bud, just not working for me if I'm been brutally honest
No probs Ed ... your loss LOL
Must confess I've probably done more popular guffs than this shot
Bloomin 'eck ... is that mine, or yours? ... eugh!!!
Looks like an erratic dinosaur turd plonked right in the way of a quality view
Exquisite light though , and well clever using that d.o.f as a lead.
Nah, the view was ***** anyway
Now you've lost me.....
Could actually be a molar.... reminds me I've a dentist appointment this week
LOL ... looks like all the other 'teeth' have already been extracted and left only this one Ed
