This shot was taken just after sunset using fill flash and a large depth of field. All comments welcome.

Hi Thomas,

Though you intended to use flash for fill, you've used it as the key light or main light instead. The setting sun provided what little fill you have here. This doesn't make this a bad image though. It is great, but lacks a natural lighting look.

I like the dark background, but at the same time, I think it would have been more interesting if a little more texture or detail were visible.

You've certainly presented a nice image. It will be interesting to see future efforts.

Thank you for sharing.

Rodney

Thanks Rodney!

My mistake on the fill flash statement. I need to monitor my typing closer. Especially later in the evening. :lol: I will attempt again later in the week and try for a more interesting background usingnatural light!

Thank you for responding.

Thanks AMATHEU and THATSANICEPICTURE2. I have seen IRIS's before, but never knew the name for them. They are very nice to look at!
