A first-timer here. New to DSLR. Looking forward to constuctive critiques.



This shot is taken right in front of my apartment here in a small town in Bavaria.

Have been waiting for the snow but still no luck...


Thanks in advance.

Welcome to this forum ethanethan!

Well if I were you, I would stop down your aperture further to get everything in focus since it is a landscape shot. This picture has nice leading lines all the way to the house at the center aided by the fence but unfortunately when the viewers eyes reach there, it becomes OOF.

Also do bear in mind that when taking snow you gotta over expose your pics a few stops (if i rem it right) else white will not be white.

My 2 cents

i agree with this, my attention was drawn to the house/ barn in the bg because its brighter and more colourful but became a pain because of the shallow dof. and try shooting this in landscape orientation too.

going for a lower angle might help plus landscape, just shoot both landscape and portrait just to be sure... ^^

happy shooting ^^
