p.1 #1 · Dry Grass in Zion


There are many magnificent vistas in Zion, but sometimes the humble grass and weeds give us opportunities to make some nice images. Here is one that I like. I feel the way the DOF worked, it gives a 3D feel to the image. It is the humble grass acting as a back drop to the iconic peaks of Zion.

As usual, your comments and criticism are always welcome.

Thank you.

Hey Maji,

This is a very good shot demostrating how to use limited DOF. You did a good job here.

Very nice framing here. The lines and curves work well for me.

Nice job with DOF, it gives an interesting look both to the shrub and the background rocks. The shrub looks to be Rabbit brush which produces a late season yellow flower in late summer and fall.

I'm so sorry that you have had 229 views and only 5 comments. I think this is an amazing picture! I love the perspective and I think the back ground is just the right amount of blur!
Thank you for sharing!

Good composition.

What lens did you use? I'm not loving the bokeh.

AMaji,
An interesting approach, and you did it well.
Strictly a subjective thing, but I'm undecided if I like it as done here.
I think I'm a bit thrown off by the richness of the background reds.
Just $.02 .

Thank you everyone for your comments.

Charlie, I will take your suggestion and see if I pull the reds down... how it will look like.

Lee, it is the lowly 28-300VR on my D300. No doubt the bokeh is jittery.

Scraptag, thanks for the comments. It is okay about the number of comments. Many people just view and that is a good thing by itself Of course, it is better to have more comments.

Callisto, thank you for identifying the plant. It must be Rabbit Brush because it was in Fall.

Here is a version with the reds in the background toned down as per Charlie's suggestion.

Lovely image. The dof works well and the 2nd image is the better of the two for me.

Thank you Bryan and Tuan. I think it is just different WB settings.

Lovely image. Definitely prefer the edited version. The softer hues seem to lend themselves better with the dof in the shot. Very nice.

Cheers,
Ed
