Log Cabin (semi repost)

By bengsays  
This is a historic barn on campus. I took it in b/w and through trees as you can see. I have a earlier picture with a tree like this but overlooking the lake so I thought I would try it again and get a subject in there. The tree is in focus and not the cabin. I would appreciate comments as I will be out again soon to try more pictures.

its a good idea, the hazyness enhances the feeling of cold. I think it would help if the cabin was more out of focus.

I agree, the composition is interesting, and maybe a little wider aperture would throw the cabin a little more out of focus. Well done though.

If your camera allows manual control, it should have a setting labelled "A" or "AP" meaning aperture priority, which allows you to set the aperture. The smaller the number, eg. f2.8, the wider the aperture opening, which gives the shallower depth of focus, meaning the least amount of forground and background in focus compared to what you are actually focusing on. For example, when you see a close-up of a flower with the background blurred out, that is called shallow depth of field (DOF). It is not easy to achieve with most compact cameras. Hope this helps.
