Thanks for the exif data Marilyn.

I would crop the bit of fencing from the bottom of the image as it doesn't add an real interest to the scene and in fact is a bit of a distraction from exploring the rest of the scene. It can be used as forground detail to give depth to the image but you need to include more of it - just creeping in like this looks like a mistake.

If the exif is correct you've got decent depth of field at f/2.8, not exactly what I'd expect. But then I wouldn't have chosen full aperture for such a subject unless the light was really really low and I couldn't use a tripod. Here you could have used f/5.6 and 1/200, thus getting better lens performance, good depth of field and still being fast enough to safely handhold. Up the ISO to 400 and you'll still get good image quality and be able to use f/8.

This is the later upload, and hte EXIF data is showing.

You've clearly picked up on all the comments on the previous upload. By the way, there's no need to use a day's upload - you could either have typed it in, or uploaded as your own modification of the original version, and people could download and examine the file.

Including all of the rail in frame might have looked neater: having the underside cut off feels a tiny bit distracting.

I'll echo all the above. You could have added the Exif as a comment on the previous upload - do you know how to access it on your computer? (Right click on the thumbnail, select Properties, then Details).

Like Keith I'm surprised at the depth of field F2.8 has given. You used aperture priority - why did you go for F2.8? Just because the lens gives it that doesn't mean to say that it's compulsory, or even advisable! You have a heavy camera if you are hand-holding, but you didn't need 1/800 second. F5.6 would have given greater depth of field and still kept a very safe shutter speed.
Thank you all for the advice!! Smile
