Re: Dirty knees

The exposure and colors are fine, the idea is good and the motif is definitely appropriate to put the idea on practice but I would have either have put the focus on the foreground flowers, or by pulling in the hyperfocal distance tried to achieve focus on both forground and background.

I would also have cropped the blurred foreground grass that does not add value.

What lens did you use? The EXIF is gone and I guess you used too large aperture. Can you check what the RAW file says?

For example, say you used the kit lens: at 14 mm and F/16 hyperfocal distance is 42 cm. You should be able to achieve focus from 38 cm to infinity. (according to DOF master tool).

Say you used the 12-60: 29 cm - infinity

With the 9-18: 16 cm - infinity

(People may argue if F/16 is beyond limit for diffraction)

Re: Dirty knees

Thanks for your post.

I will go back and look at the EXIF and find out the info.
