This old shed was the first subject that I began shooting when I took up photography as a hobby when I got my first digital camera. It has since been torn down and some of the old beams used in a new home.

Nice photos, Bob. This is going to be a topic I enjoy, also. I am always taking photos of fences, gates, etc.

Good job.

I prefer the first one here. For some reasonI think the fence stands out too much in the second one and takes away from the over all foggy image. Wonderful composition.

I like the second because the fence does stand out. In the first shot, the shed is the obvious subject. In the second, the fence is the obvious subject. Although this was accomplished by changing the shooting position. However, the same thing can be accomplished with selective focus. With selective focus, you need a fairly shallow depth of field and you focus on something in the background while the foreground is blurred. On the other hand, the foreground could be sharp with the background blurred. We may do a challenge on this concept later on.

Thank you imaginat! Our area is flat and boring so I always look forward to different weather conditions to photograph things that might look pretty bland otherwise. I guess you have to work with what ya got.
