    I go out there and find that it was all over grown. :wtc: I guess they dont keep up with the maintenance in the winter time.


    I left the tripod in the car and didn't feel like walking back to get it. (maybe I should have :o)

    you have a huge potential in this .....don't be lazy :slap: go get the tripod and take the shot the right way.

    I'd want to see more of the house and what is around the water mill...give me something to draw my attention away from the mill and back to it...lead me to the mill...give me the path of the water canal leading out of the image...show me the story of the water.

    I can understand why you want lens flare, but it wasn't executed very well. if you want it, make sure it isn't over your subject as it gets distracting. but for the most part, I wouldn't say this is a good subject to include it in.

    I'm going to wait before I go back out there. This was the only spot were you could see the mill. All other angles were blocked off.

    And I will have the tripod :o

    Noted. Thanks. After taking a second look there really isn't much to see and the flare kinda takes up some of what little subject is there.

    Heres one with a little less flare, but more shake.

    EDIT

    this might be a better view of what i had to work with.

    doesn't look like you can, but i'd say these would look better if you could move to the right more.

    you shouldnt have used f22. you could of saved the shots at a lower aperture, you could of even bumped up the iso to get a faster shutter

    .

    blur ftl

    it also looks like you had room to the right. did you try shooting it from a different angle instead of straight on?
