Field Notes

This was taken on my first trip to Tuscany during my early foray into digital photography. It's a JPEG, not a RAW capture, and belies my naivity at the time. Fortunately the light was good, although the mist a little scant, and the composition effective so I doubt my processed RAW would look much different to this. I opted to exclude the sky-landscape work is as much about what you exclude from your composition as what you include-and I decided to use a long telephoto to compress the perpective, shorten the distance between the farmhouse and the distant hills and rely on the mist and light for some atmosphere. So often it's tempting to try and include as much as possible, but less is so often more in landscape work. Nikon D70, 70-200mm, 1/125 f8 ISO100 +0.5 exp comp.
