that branch snakes pretty nice through the frame and the red of the chillies looks great. Unfortunately this is not easily to see since you have such a busy background. you need to open up the aperture to blur the background into something more homogen against which the branch stands out.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the comment. However I am using a prosumer camera, hence the max Aperture is 2.8, which is what I have use.

Aperture 2.8 is open enough provided you use a longer focal length. your camera has a 12x zomm going up to 400+mm 35mm equivalent. try if you get a shallower DOF and therefor a more blurred background at the long end of the telezoom, even though you will loose in aperture.

thats provided the background is further off, and subject is within focusing range and background is beyond range.
