Monochrome Weekly: A house and its fence

Photobucket

I like the detail on the fence in front of the house above, although I'm not satisfied with the photograph I took below.

It is irritating when you can't get the shot you want. I think reducing the depth of field to a sliver might have sufficed.

Hugs from Anne this Sunday.

That's a stately home. I wouldn't hop that fence if I didn't have to. It's lovely and makes its point!

What a beautiful fence that is! (Imagine being able to make it.)

Miranda said...

Gorgeous entrance!! I'm so a door person. Nice fence.

Mojo said...

So what is it about the fence shot that you weren't happy with? I actually like the varied textures in it quite a lot.

Sistertex said...

I agree with Aileni regarding the depth of field. It would take some of the detail out of the background and pop the texture of the fence a little bit more, if that was what you were looking for.

Though it is really a very nice photo as is!

I love the detail in old fences. This is a perfect example of the age of perfection.

Great stately home. I agree with Aileni, I think a shallower depth of field would have highlighted the patterns on the fence a bit better with less distraction from the grass. It's a great subject though, fun to shoot.

Lene said...

I just love the fence. And the house, ofcourse :)

Barbara said...

Great pic, even if you are not satisfied!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and commenting. Next time I'll try reducing the depth of field. That's a good idea. I was hoping the rosettes on the fence would stand out more which was part of what I wasn't happy about with the fence shot.

Tone said...

Hi

As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting that I started in July called "5 on the fifth" where you take 5 random photographs on the fifth of the month and post them to your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site - I then update my blog entry so the world has your link.

Interested?

Here's a link to my blog

and a link to the last "5 on the fifth" entry

It works well as a monochrome and the fence is a good/interesting shot!

Beautiful house, the detail is very attractive....
I love to see wrought iron fences like that, I would not like the up keep of painting them though....
