Hello Folks..

Picture taken on Achill Island. Keem Bay. You know this location from my
An inspiration for this composition was a picture saw on flickr.com gallery.
I was trying do something similar.
The stones were wet when I took them from the river.

Hope you will like it.

Hi Janek - the f7.1 has ensured the foreground stones are really nice and sharp with a lot of detail and texture - nice capture of the wetness.. And the background is nicely blurred, doesn't distract but lets us see the context of the stones.

A good lesson in depth of field.

Nice dof!!! Excellent detail on the rocks in the fg. Very nice colors and detail and a lovely blurred bg. TFS

i do like this and it is interesting but to me the out of focus landscape is a little distracting. try a narrower dof or move so that the stones are more against the sky, as these shots cry out for simplicity.tfs

hi janek
looking at a thumbshot i thought it was pommel
of a boat.but the stones look great where it was placed the out of focus b/g emphasises the rocks well done

A fine composition Janek. The set-up stones are well placed in the frame, sharp, and with good texture. The tech settings chosen provide good outline of the mountain slope. Well done and cheers!

Hi Janek,
Nice idea! I like what you've done here. Very well composed and focused, good use of the shallow DOF. The rocks look nice and clear, the mountain in the BG gives the rocks something to stand out against. Well done.
