Great composition Tom ... always nicer when you can get two points of interest in one shot Regards from kiwi-land, Barbara

Hi Barbara, thanks for having a look at my collection, hope you are not terrified by 135 pages (NZ photos are at the other end and in the middle) :)

When talking about composition - this is one of my first digital photos and unfortunately, I was still learning how to handle my new camera (2004)... and photography, so most of my photos made on this trip are more documentary than nice. But you are right, getting foreground and background plan together makes a photo interesting. Also low level horizon is not bad in this case. But all these elements of good photography were made more by chance than by my intention.

I hope I've learned something more about photography since then... but I am still amateur.

Cheers, Tom

Skutečně zdařilá kompozice, přidávám L.

Díky Tome! Zajímavé, i když z mé Severní cesty je tahle zdařilejší, moc velkou odevu to nemá...

Tomáši, velice povedená kompozice a dobrá hloubka ostrosti na zajímavém místě. Moc se mi to líbí a proto dávám své F+L, z Ostravy zdraví Jarda /ne Ruda/ z Ostravy PS. Docela mne to inspirovalo, ale obávám se, že do těchto míst se už asi nepodívám...

Tomas K☼h☼ut on July 29, 2012

To se to fotí s velkou hloubkou ostrosti, když má člověk kompakt! ;-)

Přeji ti nějakou pěknou cestu, ať už dlouhou nebo krátkou...

Very interesting crosses indeedm, especially the little roofs:-) So even if it was a lucky shot with a new camera it's well done!

Hi inboil, thanks for visit! You are right, I was impressed in Lithuania by wooden artworks and especially by the variety of crosses.

Best wishes from Prague, Tom
