Hmm, right out of my comfort zone with this one, so it will be good to have your views, especially since my monitor isn't calibrated at the mo.

Visited the local arboretum on a day that was too windy for decent flower shots... came across this bench that is part of the sculptural exhibition (Art in the Garden) laid out across the grounds.
It was too low for my tripod, so I balanced the camera on the bench itself and waited for the sunlight to hit the plane of focus I was concentrating on.

Shot on F4, Exp. Comp. -1, AV priority.

Your views are most welcome Smile

Well this one might go against the grain Allie, but no one's going to take the pith out of this one.

P.S. On the hole that is.
