I used to think this was a nice photo. Yeah, it’s okay, but certainly not the best. When I took the photo, I was interested in showing detail of the Vermont covered bridge. I wanted sort of a muted or blurred background to make the subject more prominent. My interest was the diamond pattern of the wood and not the woods and stream in the background.
Now, with two more years of experience, I think it would be a better shot if I had used a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field. That way, the woods and stream would also be in sharp focus, and be “framed” by the diamond pattern.
I mean, really, what’s so interesting about some old 2×4’s?
