Among the Wildflowers & repost

This past summer on one of my neighborhood walks, I wanted to make this small patch of wildflowers in the middle of a city look like you were in the country. So I laid down on the sidewalk. I was even able to get a bee flying.

Specific Feedback Requested

Any feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Technical Details

Is this a composite: No
Nikon D3400
ISO 100
Slight crop, as I could see a little bit of the blurred highway, lights and traffic at the top of the frame.


Vanessa: You did really well with your POV and I like your DOF choice. The bee on the same plane of focus as the main subjects is a nice bonus. Nicely done. >=))>

I agree with with Bill, your choice of DOF having the background flowers blurred but still recognizable to different extent makes the image.

Thank you, so much! This is probably one of my most intentional, worked shots of just a landscape. I mostly go for animals and take quick photos of the other things around me. But I really liked this tiny patch of flowers and wanted to make it look bigger!

Hi Vanessa, mission accomplished, I do believe I’m in the country. :grinning: Good idea to lay low for this shoot and the bee is a bonus. All the out of focus flowers impart a feeling of being in a large meadow. Just a minor nit, I would prefer the two main subjects to be a bit more off centered, but still a lovely city scene.

Hi Jim! Thanks for the feedback! Were you meaning something like this?..

Looks great Vanessa, you nailed it. And, still plenty of elbow room for the flowers. What a great portrayal of “beeline”, lol.
