Had a quick stop off at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park earlier this week. Not the best time of day (again!) but at least the sky was half decent.
As always any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Phil

A nice piece of work with good composition. I guess you used f16 to be certain of having both the sculpture and the background in focus. I would think that at the focal length of 11mm you could have upped the shutter speed to 1/60 to make life easier for yourself and used f11 instead, still maintaing all in good focus throughout.

Frank, I tend to use f/16 on landscape shots to ensure front to back sharpness, but yes f/11 may well have sufficed in this instance. Shutter speed wasn't an issue as a tripod was used.
Thanks,

Phil

Thanks, Phil

I should have realised that.

Well covered, given the light conditions. Well exposed, plenty sharp enough and a nice dynamic composition.
If I was going to be picky, I might have separated the tree and sculpture a little by moving to the left so less space at the edges of the frame without affecting the aspect ratio (but you could still shave the existing shot). With an ultra wide, a small movement changes the perspective quite a lot, so it probably would only be a half-step anyway, but the tree and shadow would have had a space of its own.

Thanks, Nick, I like the idea of more separation between the sculpture and tree. At the time of taking my main concern was to ensure that there was at least some space between them.

Well composed pictorial record moved towards a creation by using the wide angle. Nothing really to criticise as is. Might just prefer a more dramatic lighting but then would be a different shot altogether.

Agreed,Paul, I would have loved more dramatic lighting.
