I'm glad I couldn't have seen/guessed that.

That's where you'd be wrong. This pic was designed from the title to the cropping to the subject matter so as to completely confuse most photographers. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. This is in stark contrast to non photography people who have seen this pic. Almost all of them see a tree in fruit with blossoms on it and ask if it's a real pic or not. When I tell them yes they respond with well that's cool and not something you see everyday. Basically they like it for what it is.

All of us photographers have a tendency to get completely caught up in rules and other details to the point that we don't even see the captured image let alone appreciate it. It's something to think about.

I guess we'll have to take your word for it, professor

Now here's the same blossom taken in a manner that's not "confusing" photographically speaking. It's still a strange sight on a hot August day.

I was going to ask about the background fruit (at the time I though maybe apricots?), but you mentioned disregarding the bokeh earlier. Should I have been looking for .exif to find the date shot? teacha.gif

Yep and that's when you would have started asking questions about whether or not the pic was real or was the blossom grafted (someone guessed that) and so on.

And I think Señor Crane might want to think about giving up the peace pipe for Lent.

I might have known the answer to Crane's question if this was "Post your gardening skills". That's like posting a picture of a BMW in front of a house on a car forum and then asking what is wrong with it. The answer? The roof of the house does not fit the overall architectural style.

Your analogy is incorrect.

Good efforts, ed. Nice matchy-matchy first pic smile.gif. The second shot might have been more interesting if you had turned the camera down a little bit, so you can see more of the man in the hat. Third one is nice as it is; a tight square crop might be interesting too.

I get what Crane was attempting to do but it was a bit too cerebral and out of context for a thread like this.

I can't be the only one who didn't know what the hell he was looking at, let alone that it was a tree, let alone that the flower in the foreground had anything to do with the background, and let alone just what exactly was in the background.

I'll defer to a better-versed gentleman than myself: if a thread full of photography fans don't get what you're capturing, maybe you didn't capture it.

I bought a Nikon S100 and was wondering what are ideal settings? I don't understand ISO or MP enough to know which one to use when and why. I bought the camera cause I wanted a good point and shoot digital camera for my trip I'm leaving on Thursday. Sometimes I'll get a really nice quality photo and other times it looks like crap.
