What a smashing autumnal shot - just lovi'n that contrast!
Love this shot, as David says the contrast is great.
very nice B&W here!
great shot. though its alot of things happening in the picture it looks clean. maby its the b&w or the dof, dunno but its beautiful!
Beautiful B&W. Reminds me the winter days.. or spring..
Miles, I wonder how this would have looked with a shallower DoF.
Thanks! I should mentioned that this shot is made up of 6 images all shot wide open at f/1.8. The shots were stitched together in photoshop to make the result you see here.
To get this kind of effect in a single frame you would need an f/1.2 or f/1.0 lens, or a large format camera!
Interesting that you were able to take 6 shots and make this. Very creative!
Thanks for explaining. I should have noticed by the perspective that this was an unusually shallow DoF already. This is an effective alternative to a wide angle tilt-shift.
Yeah, this technique is the only way to get a shallower depth of field with a 35mm platform.
My problem with a tilt and shift lens is that it doesn't actually create depth of field. It ignores the visual planes, just blurring everything in the selected area no matter how deep it sits in the image. The blur is genuine, and very pretty if used right, but it's also indiscriminate. Of course, that's not what it was designed to do in the first place.
Trees are always such a beautiful subject as demonstrated here. Would love to just walk through this image hearing the crunch of leaves under my feet.
wonderful black and white, is made in infrared?
Love the shot and the fact that it's black and white. Nice!
dunno why. but this reminds me of some kind of japanese garden, shown in some movies :D
maybe it's just the kind and the arrangement of the trees + fallen leaves.. whatever
love the graphic quality of this.
