Green Olives

Nikon 3200, 50mm, f11, 1/80

Taken outdoors, wanted to use natural light to back light the bottles  have the reflection of trees in the bottles. (reflections aren't as successful as I hoped).   Flash on the left at 45 degrees and a bounce card on the right.

  • Hi Danie, how can improve sharpness?  My focus was on the single olive, do you feel that the bottles needed to be sharp as well?


    I find the monochromatic colour scheme interesting and unfortunately, the image lacks sharpness. You can improve the composition by cropping in the left and right edges and get rid of those vertical lines, which has a strong visual pull.
