ODC Keep It Simple

Single in September 09, 2013


I had looked at the title of the "Keep it Simple" challenge before I drove home from work. I saw this lonesome old mailbox on one of the country roads I drive down, and thought it looked pretty simple. I turned around to go back to capture this, since I didn't decide to shoot the shot until I was 500 feet down the road. Might not have been worth going back for, but I'm happy with it.


A fair amount of crop since I flubbed the composition. On another note, I shot this wide open at f2.8.I've noticed 2.8 is very soft at longer distances at 200mm, so I went to medium distance and less than 200, and the sharpness is certainly more than acceptable.
