Any advice on this photo…?

6 years 4 months ago #389062 by WalterK
This time of year – being winter – and all the beautiful colors of winter…
Where I saw the last couple of sun-rays fall onto this little bush looking very surreal having a golden brown glow … the fence in the back ground is terrible however…
 
Do anyone have some advice with a reshoot how to eliminate the fence.
The fence and the bush is practically next to each other…
Dof is therefore not an option??? Or Am I mistaking? (Shooting with a Nikon D3200 and kit lenses.)
 
I was contemplating getting a shovel and remove the fence but it sounded like to much work!
And in Photoshop it may even be more work?

I did very little post processing... My concern would be the fence at this stage...

Is it possible to change the angle of the shot? In PS you could get away with getting rid of the left half and the top bar of the fence using a healing brush.

I was thinking of this .... changing the angle...

It would not be possible by walking around the fence would be in every shot... I was considering to lying down and shoot towards thy sky or at an angle... may getting a blue backdrop...

That could work, another method is to get very close to it, you might find something of interest there.

One of those that I just walk past. So many potential great shots have drawbacks in the way.

Sometimes a shot is just not there. Keep the idea and look elsewhere.

Make this an exercise in closeup photography.  Instead of trying to get the entire bush in the frame.

Try shooting along the fence line and cropping it out of the image. Shooting from under the bush is a great idea keeping the image very tight. Or...get a ladder and shoot down through the bush.

Got this with a reshoot and a close up...
Shooting along  the fence did not give the desired effect, seeing that the sun's glow was not as visible.

Shooting up was not the best either.

I like this much more than the first shot. Now you have to find a pattern or a pleasing composition within what is there. You also have to think about your depth of field. It all goes to make a picture pop out rather the Hmmm. Fences are usually a no no unless they are a feature. I have noticed them (fences) in some nature shots here and I would imagine judges would be very loath to award the photo anything in a nature competition. 
Enjoy your hobbies Hans
