Comments made by the photographer

Submitter's name: GeeBee
Title: none
Gear used: Olympus OM2 SP 135mm f2 Zuiko
Diaphragm: f5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/250
Film used: Ilford Delta 400 @400
Technical Information: Used the 135mm because the post was away from the bank of the lake and I wanted to fill the frame.
Subject Information: It was a dull flat day and the post although a short distance from the bank was shrouded by overhanging trees. I was concerned about the trade off between DOF and being able to hold the camera steady, so much so that I retraced my steps a few minutes later and reshot with the 85mm in case I had missed the shot with the 135mm.

Comment left by: Wayne Harridge (no e-mail specified) Beautiful effect with the out of focus areas.

Comment left by: Alasdair Mackintosh (tope@toomanybooks.org) Lovely. I like the fact that the post is leaning slightly to one side, which adds a bit of tension to the composition. A perfectly upright post wouldn't quite work, I don't think.

Comment left by: Andrew Wendelborn (andrew@cs.adelaide.edu.au) Simple and effective. Is that ice around the pole? I guess you mean 135/2.8,
not f2? I like that lens a lot.

Comment left by: Graham Battison (GeeBe) (graham@geebeephoto.com) Right on both counts :-) Lens is f2.8 and that is ice around the fence post. It was the strange spoke formation of the ice around the post that caught my eye. Thanks for looking and commenting

Comment left by: Duncan Paterson (no e-mail specified) Beautifully composed and exposed. Very simple but very effective. Well done!
