The following photographs were all taken at Buscot park in Oxfordshire. Once again they were all taken with a Nikon D800 and a 24-120mm f/4.0 lens. The first image taken of the copies held at Buscot of some of the terracotta army is in my more usual format of 1:1 or square. I opened the lens to F/4.0 and focussed on the second sculpture in the line as I wanted the viewer to be drawn to that particular one. By making the others out of focus and the one in the foreground cropped as well, I think that aim has been achieved.
The second image is of the obelisk in the garden. The sky was a deep blue that day and it was very warm so in processing I darkened the sky a little more to emphasise the three sides of the sculpture that can be viewed in the picture.
The third image, I took because of the implacable stare that was on the statue. I also like the way that the sun left shadows on the face highlighting the features.
Second in Line
There will probably be a few ‘Out and Abouts’ in Berkswell this year, as I am taking part if a project by the viewfinder.club called ‘The Walk’. The challenge is to do the same shortish walk – two miles or so – many times a year, recording the changes that you see, and trying to come up with original photographs along the way.
We awoke this morning to a light smattering of snow and so I thought that it would be a good opportunity to take my first pictures of the project. I knew that the fields and paths would be very wet and boggy after all the rain we have had, so I donned walking boots and gaiters. It was very boggy underfoot. The going was quite hard in places and there was a very cold wind blasting across the top of the hill as I ascended.
I think that I have managed to get one or two photographs that will be included in the eventual book I will do.
I used my Nikon D800 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens.
