18.06.13 - Depth of Field, in the Field :)
I've been so busy recently, for every hour spent taking photos we seem to spend at least 5 hours processing them, including liaising back and forth with clients. After a day in front of a monitor it is good to get out in the fresh air and unwind, and Mr Willis gives the perfect excuse to leave the house. This is classic Mr Willis, he is such a happy dog when he is out in the countryside, he only really stands still when he is looking to see why I'm lagging behind. I seem to take the majority of my photos at either 18mm or 200mm, with a small proportion in between. I love big expansive landscapes, but I also love isolating scenes within scenes like this. I love playing around with the shallow depths of field that long lenses and low f-stops give. When I first saw this image I was a bit disappointed that the vibrant greens hadn't come through, so I used the glamour glow filter in Color Efex Pro to bring it back to life.
Thankyou for the wonderful comments on my big riverside sunset afterglow yesterday :)
