Palm Study

I like palm trees. I think they provide interesting subjects to photograph, especially if you can get a group of them like in this photo. I was going for a "spiral" feeling with this shot. In hindsight, maybe a higher aperture for a clearer background would have been better, but I also wanted to convey the depth of the spiral too, so I personally like the depth of field.

 

I also wanted to convey that the viewer is sitting in a tree, but in reality, the palms were just growing over the balcony of my hotel room! :)

 

1/14/2009 Update: this came up as one of my screen saver images and it really works much better at that size.

 

M, f/5, 1/125, ISO 100, Canon 18-55mm EF-S @ 37mm
