Use a combination of small aperture and wide lens to explore deep depth of field.
My initial images for this exercise were a very traditional landscape view of local farmland, using the tractor pathway to draw your eye into the picture. I prefer the left image as I feel it is more balanced.
Further experimentation used a slightly less distant panorama
The selected image is shown here, as although the Gunnera make a striking element, I feel they take over the whole image and I would have preferred them to be less dominant.
- remember to think about the whole image, foreground and background especially is using a small aperture.
- look at the balance within the image
- one very dominant part can take over, not always the part wanted
