Hi @schatrathi ,

That is a very nice photograph. I like it. However, too much is out of focus. I believe you did not have enough depth of field and also you placed the focus too short.

Hi @jacquelingphoto2017 ,

Thank you! That's helpful. I am assuming that the surface of the road (closest to the viewer) is in focus while the rest of the landscape is "soft"? 

It was shot at f/10 at 1/400 exposure. Any advice on how to improve it, if I were to re-shoot it, of course 🙂

Hi @schatrathi,

F/10 is too shallow for that distance. You'll need to set f-stop at over 20. If nothing is moving you can take shutter speed to as low as 1/60 or even lower if you use a tripod. While you might want to keep ISO low, remember that is also important when determining the exposure and exposure depends on factors such as the time of day and weather condition. In this case your focal point should be at least 1/3 away from the base of the frame. When you take the shot, zoom in to make sure it's sharp, or at least most of it is sharp. The forefront should be sharp.

 

Best wishes

I shoot most of my landscapes at f10-f11; but you have to estimate the hyper-focal distance which is generally about a third of the way into the frame and focus on that point. I think you could have lightened the shadows on the barn slightly since it is quite dark.

In addition to what has already been said, the shed needs to be lightened a bit and you have a sensor spot to the right of the shed and half way up the sky.

I'm not persuaded, that focus is the major problem here. It would, however be interesting to know where you did focus. For landscapes, you need to choose a focus point somewhere farer away, but not at the farest point possible. 

 

The biggest problem is here the processing introducing a very saturated picture and the dust spots that need to be corrected. I also thing that noise reduction and sharpening is to pronounced. Noise reduction eats details and sharpening adds kind of a halo effect.
