So, have you already made your wish, Jeff?
In the first place I think you should rotate the image by
1 degrees to the right. I found the focusing a little soft, so you could select the well and sharpen it about 40% in the USM. Disabling the AiAF of the camera would give you more control in determining the focus according to your priority. Thirdly, in your shots where you do not fill the frame with the subject matter, I'd suggest you do not place the main figure right at the center but consider applying the rule of the thirds as much as possible for a better composition.
Lucky you :-)You've got a good camera, so make the best out of it..

A lovely nook, indeed. Makes sense to me...
With this shot I am also getting to know about your height :-) However, you'll also find that human hight is usually not an ideal height to shoot in such occasions...So, you've got to learn to kneel before your subject matter! Try preserving the edges as much as possible and locking the focus on your intended object.
Such a pleasurable hobby...Don't you find?
Rgds,
Bahadır.

Relatively better, I can safely say. At least I see more of the lovely bucket and the rustic texture of the brick wall.
It's also nice to see a simple example of post and lintel construction from under the roof. These wells are essential part of country life and this one must be near where you live.
Still, I think you should include the bottom of the edifice in the frame and shoot a little from a diagonal view rather than straight frontal, letting the observer see a little of the side wall for more sense of dimension.
Keep up the good work, Jeff :-)

Your perseverance is worthy of praise, Jeff. I do hope you come up with something satisfactory for yourself in the end.
I think you could stand back a little and also use the frame perpendicularly if necessary, so as to fill the frame with the whole thing. After all, your camera allows you enough resolution enabling you to crop out the distracting elements later.
By moving a little to the left you could avoid the obstracting prop, and consequently do more justice to the authentic windlass of the well, IMO, while avoiding a straight frontal view on the other hand.
And to be able to say hello again, I bid you good bye :-)

Thanks for all the advice. I am sure it will take time to put everything into perspective not to mention practice. I am finished with this project. Thanks again.



Jeff
