First image, shooting details. AV mode, shutter speed 1/25, f5.6, ISO 100, focal length 90mm, exposure comp +1/3 to lighten slightly. This was hand held which was not idea as the area was abit shaded hence the shutter speed was abit slow therefore not that sharp. Why did I take this, it is the platform the oil tank sits on and bits that Mick finds/collects seem to be put there, just one of those odd little collection points that we seem to have! Plus I love the stones he finds on his travels at work.
AV mode, shutter speed 1/8, f7.1, ISO 100, focal length 41mm. Once again hand held, looking upwards, once again a shaded area, slow shutter, exposure comp +2/3. This is the underneath the balcony, I like the pattern and texture of the wood, looking damp though.
AV mode, shutter speed 0.4, f25, ISO 100, focal length 55mm, exposure comp -2/3 to darken slightly. This was taken on a tripod due to very slow shutter speed to blur the movement of the water. My last and favourite, these leaves had got trapped in the wire across the pond and I thought they looked really attractive (blueberry leaves), the orange in the water is the fish. I like the pattern of the wire and the reflection in the water.
Which do I think is my best, possibly the last, for sharpness and interest. Over you to now to critique :)
