About the Image(s)

Last June, and through a friend of mine that lives in Pennsylvania, I joined a workshop in Maryland organized by Capital Photography Center, titled “Lavender Fields Forever” in a farm that dedicates to the growing and processing of Lavender. They open the farm for workshops. This happened to be a rainy
day with no sunshine (perfect gigantic soft box). I used a Nikon Z7ii with the Nikkor zoom lens 24-70 mm f/4 S @ 28 mm and these settings: ISO 100, f/10 and 1/100 sec, on a tripod and doing photo stacking, 2 images one focused on the fence, and the other at the red barn and blended in photoshop. The image
was PP in LightRoom and cropped. The additional images are for complementing the story telling, and doing a little of art photography (long exposure and moving the camera)

Isaac, to me the idea of framing the barn with the fence is creative. As I observe the image it seems that you have well chosen the camera settings to get the fence and the barn both in sharp focus. I believe that the color and the contrast of the barn and the trees add to the image.

From my experience I feel that the amount of the fence you have chosen to include together with the "featureless" sky creates too much dead space in the image. I wonder if this might be a good candidate for sky replacement and/or showing more of the fence to make it a foreground object.   Posted: 08/02/2022 18:40:08

Gary, thank you for your recommendations. I did do a sky replacement, and cropped the amount of fence, since the original image is the full frame.   Posted: 08/02/2022 21:08:26

For me those two changes make a significant differences. I feel it is now much more pleasing to the eyes and holds my view on the barn. Well done!   Posted: 08/03/2022 06:10:51

Your original crop feels awkward to me. The barn is beautiful, i will show this to my husband as he loves barns. I am not sure you need the fence given that you have nice deep colors with the green, red and the revised sky of blue. Did they have any lavender fields to photograph? Is the farm in Maryland?   Posted: 08/07/2022 11:48:26

Yes Vella it is in Maryland, but I think it was too early for the Lavender season as you can see in this other image. Very little color   Posted: 08/07/2022 12:12:44
