The other day I was biking home from work and spotted two swans fairly close to shore. The lightning seemed perfect, but proved to be way to bright to shoot f/1.4, even with max shutter speed of 1/4000. So unfortunately I was unable achieve the beautiful bokeh that the Minolta 50mm is able to render.
Only 5 days to Central America now. Things will get a lot more colorful then!
So, the result of last weeks photo challenge at Letsbewild just came in, and I was fortunate not to get an honorable mention.
What surprised my was that it wasn’t the one with the bridge that won (my favorite), but instead this one.
It is not that I don’t like this photograph, but it was just something I snapped as I walked past, not something I composed or put great thought into. It just proves that sometimes it helps not to think to much when it comes to photography. You just need to follow your instincts.
I took this photo the other day when I was walking home from work in the sunshine.
I don’t think the apartment buildings are particularly beautiful, but I do like the composition and the angles of the photograph.
