Please Do Not Close The Gate!

By Fefe
Morning everyone.......................... Thankyou for yesterday's votes and comments on "Sailors Delight" my first upload of a portrait sunset, so pleased you liked itGrinGrin
Todays image was taken Sunday, and since my upload of a rusty shot a few weeks ago I have been watching out for other rusty stuff to photograph. Having been using aperture priority for a good while now and feel I am getting to grips with it, I am now experimenting and playing with depth of field too, I will be grateful of any comments................. Unfortunatley I have no time today for any lengthy debates mind. Not much processing to this shot, no crop, just the basic colour contrast stuff. Busy day today and my last upload for a couple of weeks as I am taking the camera for a long walkWinkGrinGrin

Great image Fefe, love the contrasting colours, if you are experimenting with DOF, you will need to manualy control the aperture.

I know you were looking for rusty stuff but the wood really takes centre stage in this image. Interesting find, do you know if it was purposely burnt or did it get hit by lightening as it's pretty much charcoal! Great texture to it! Smile

Am I doing this wrong then? It was aperture priority, I set the aperture with the histogram, I think it was on Macro too, and I was meant to be focusing on the timber.............. I have put the exif on, but to me most of it is greek to meTongue

Thanks Loren, I was meant to be focusing on the wood, not sure why it is so charcoal looking, think the black area at the bottom is tar, but didnt touch to find outTongueGrin

Certainly some interesting textures there, Diane. Always good to experiment but also taking several of the same image with different settings is a good exercise to see what is possible. You off somewhere exotic?? Grin

Whatever you were out to achieve, Diane, you have achieved an intersting mix of colours, textures and focus. That wood is marvellous and quite rightly puts the rust into the shade.
Enjoy the exotic drinks with fruit in and umbrellas in the glassGrin
