    I took this, and cropped it somewhat, but I'm not sure if I like the post in the fore ground or not. What do you think? It adds somewhat, but also somewhat distracting.

    I think it would be better with the foreground post in focus & fading away behind it.

    I'd agree with that. Compositionally I'd also like a lot more of the fence and less of the tree.

    Yeah. IMO the post does distract a bit... I agree with Resin about the fence or even Rons suggestion to focus on the post and add some bokeh to the background. Nice photo though.

    Thanks for the input. I don't think I could have got more of the fence in, as there was a tree behind me. I do think that having the first post in focus may have worked better.

    How about this one? Same photo shoot, different section of fence. I think it's slightly over exposed. Any other comments?

    Nice photo! A little on the green side, but it doesnt appear overexposed at all... I think I know what you mean though... If you would of lowered the exposure a bit you could have filled in the foreground bush with flash... Overall, I like the pic, but theirs not much contrast in it... I did notice that this pic is somewhat how Ron was suggesting... just needs a little more bokeh.

    Thanks for the compliment. I did shoot this in RAW, so maybe the points you mentioned can be "fixed" somewhat. I just have to figure out how to do it. :lol:

    Here's a slightly changed version.

    That's better but now you need to crop out the hydro pole on the right margin.

    Yeah, thats not bad at all. You have the idea. What I like about this alternate shot is the bit of wood fence that pokes out at you from behind the greenery, right where the picture starts. Nice work.
