07.28.2022 Crossed Blades in Brickyard 2

Third in the series.  It was a good morning for dew drops.

It was too breezy for stacking but I think the out of focus blade works better than had it been sharp.  Aside from not liking to alter nature for an image, any movement on one part of this scene causes movement on all and those drops would all have dropped if I tried to move the back blade.

    I’m glad not all the blades are sharp. It reminds me of a view of nature through a window.

    • I would have had to stack images for front to back sharpness and in the breeze that might not have worked anyway. But had the back blade been sharp I think it would have competed with the sharp drops so in the long run a better image, I think. Glad you think so too.
