Hi Lesley
Excellent composition, the colours are amazing, just wondered why you used such a shallow DOF, because the background is very soft, still gets a vote!

Regards

Trev.

oh trev ..I am going to have to come clean ..in public haha

I don;t really understand what I have done wrong , have I set "dof" on my camera ? or have I used the software wrong ...

I really am a novice trev , and I want to learn and appreciate so much you giving me your time and comments , its just that I don;t understand.

I just click with my 70 pound camera from the tesco's and spend half my life now trying to get shots that make me think "yes"

I have put that here rather than in private so maybe anyone can also point me in the right direction.

thankyou trev and everybody for your continuing support of my shots.

Hi Leslie
Not sure if you have a complete automatic camera, if so you will not be able to do much about the problem other than use landscape mode if it has one, if you can set the cameras controls then you need to use f11 or even f22 to get the foreground and background in focus, focus about a third in to frame and at f22 the background and foreground should be sharp, what you will have to watch then is the shutter speed, for every stop up you go the speed drops by a stop so you could get camera shake, to overcome this a tripod would work, it also slows you down and gets you thinking about composition rather than snap and hope for best. If this does not make sense to you let me know and I will try to be more basic.

Regards

Trev.

Beautiful image, girl. This must be a golfcourse with splendid greens (nicely mowed lawn - sheep don't get this good LOL). Trev gave us good advice, Thanks Trev. Keep up the good work Lesley

thankyou all very much SmileSmile



trev , I do understand what your saying Tongue well ....not the f11 and f22 bit ..

my camera is very basic which gives me no shutter speed option , but funnily enough I had just posted on the forum about the rule of thirds , so thankyou for the easy explanation.

shutter wise the only thing I can do (so my camera says) is press it half shut to focus then click , which is what I have been giving a lot of practice. This is why I have problems taking anything that moves haha ...its moved by the time you hear a click Tongue

You will be glad to know I do spend some time rolling about in the mud and face down on a flower trying to get a decent shot , but quite literallly have to just aim and click when it comes to anything alive and able to move away.

thankyou very much trev Smile

I don't have a landscape option , but I do have a beauty scene option , which I am hoping is the same as.

cheddar caveman and neil s off the forum had googled my camera and had a good read and told me I literally do have a "point and cick" camera which does restrict what I can achieve , however for the time been its ok for me, untill I get to grips with it all. Wink
