Almost Over

Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 28 April 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

After all the b&w, indoor shots I've posted lately I thought I'd do something with a hint of colour to liven up this blog. As Kyoto is beginning to exit Winter at last, my posts for the next few days will attempt to show that and will all have an obvious element of green.

Canon EOS Kiss X 1/160 second F/5.0 ISO 200 120 mm

Oh my, this is outstanding. The richness of the color and the subtle use of DOF really makes this a fine image.

@GJC: Many thanks GJC. As I've said before I love the uncomplicated nature of your compositions. It was definitely a source of inspiration for this post and the next few as well.

Wow! This is stunning and your depth of field is perfect. I like that you can still make out the detail in the background.

Beautiful photo! I think its better with not completely out of focus background because it makes the photo more interesting!
