      • Yes. I think for me it always represents camping/vacation

  3. My apologies for sounding so demanding. I like that narrow depth of field and how the colours are brought out.

  5. Ok, Christopher, what are your settings for this?

    • Hi Jane,

      The settings for this were: 1/1000th of a second; aperture was f/4; on an ISO-equivalent of 800.
      I was shooting with a full frame dSLR (Canon 5DIII) with a 500mm f/4 telephoto lens. This combination of a really long lens, full frame sensor and f/4 (wide open) made for very shallow depth of field. The trees ringing the lake provided a beautiful reflection on the water.

      Cheers,

      Chris
