    I would like to have a little bit shallower DOF.

    Score 6/10 (from the Score Me!

  2. Serge Marx 109 months ago | reply

    Shallow DOF should be used when there are distracting elements in the background - when you've got nice smooth consistent background like this, there's no need. I'd consider cropping at the top a bit, just to remove the trees and the end of the field. this i think may give more depth to the shot. love the subject and the colours are not what I think of when i think of india!

    Score 7.5/10 (from the Score Me!

    I'd go tighter and lose the people in the background. they aren't the subject. nice colours. Score 7/10 (from the Score

    Try using a smaller aperture, as there are too many distractions in the picture. nice colouring though.

    Score 6/10 (from the Score Me!

    I agree. Try to reduce your DoF. Other than that, great eye!

    Score 7/10 (from the Score Me! group)

    Thanks Guys...

    All, I tried to crop it at the top and somehow it did not appeal to me much... The length of the field is kinda lost...

    @fotojux - U've got to check out India when u get a chance... its more beautiful than this and the perspectives are got from shows on TV... its a lot different...

    I'll remember to play with DOF the nexttime around... :)

    Thanks all again...

    good colours, but as "fotojux" if uve used DOF, i think it will become better. I wanted to see only the bullocks and the man - now the background is a bit distracting. - well thats my opinion.

    Wow nice one, colour combination is very good. Agree with the crop gives the perspective. Hmm quite agree with the description you have given.

    I found your photo in the energybulletin.org - lovely picture but surely they are hoeing not ploughing. Hoeing is weeding between the rows and ploughing buries all the growing plant and stubble.
