ok. A tough assignment in a mostly suburban environment; unless you own a Genie Boom Lift; but I shall regroup and come at it from a different angle.

ummm… the one pass on that page "Walk on a stormy beach...." was a technical fail; "While there is not a single object in the foreground, the overall effect of the folliage give a sense of presence to the image that works for me."

@LAbernethy: Still not enough background. Imagine your shooting a landscape... stop down really tight (>f16) and include something in the foreground to give the viewer context for the overall image. This will add depth and connect the viewer to the scene as a whole.

Here is an example.

Cheers... Brian

@LAbernethy: Lots of foreground there, Lee, but not much background. The foreground should add depth and interest to the background, which should be a more prominent element of the composition. Please try again.

Cheers... Brian

Thanks again Brian - I had been working out ideas for an alternative shot, but now I need to check out the next one on the list.

@Phil Wood: You're on a roll, Phil! The gate in the foreground provides depth and a point of reference for the viewer. Well done.

Cheers... Brian

Assignment 3. Not so sure about this one - a bit worried that the foreground is too much of the picture.

At the Castle Gate


A58, Minolta 28-105xi @28mm, ISO 100, 1/60s f13. In camera JPG, autofocus, steadyshot on.

Gamma adjusted to correct for some overexposure (something odd going on with this camera/lens combo).

@Metroruss: The police car provides a (slightly OOF) foreground element and adds a bit of depth to #2, but neither image has a sufficient background detail (IMO) to complete the assignment. Please try again.

Cheers... Brian

P.S. Daylight will allow a higher f-stop and DOF so that the foreground element and scenic background are all in focus.
