    Hi

    Took this just at the end of our (British) summer time. Didn;t have long to setup the shot as the sun was setting.

    What do you think?. All comments good and bad welcome :eek:)

    i like the idea here, and it seems that you had some nice light but:


    the house is distracting
    and the central twig isnt prevalent enough to grab my attention...



    awesome attempt!!

    Thanks for the comments :)

    I wa trying to draw attention to the twig by the light from the window. I tried to get a shallow DOF so the house would not be a distratction.

    Do you think it would have helped if the twig was a flower instead?.

    I think so. I like the house in the background, it's just the subject ain't grand enuf to grab us. IMHO

    I like the house, but the light in the house makes it hard to look at the "twig". I don't know how to fix it, other than ask the homeowner to turn it off. The DOF is nice, but the twig seems too small and too dark (as already stated "isn't prevelant enough to grab [our] attention")
