As promised, a follow to the Fish thread.

Here's my bad one from this week. I rode by at sunset and saw long corn and a romantic dilapidated shack. The corn had great shadows. This is reduced in size and rotated, otherwise untouched. What's wrong with it?

    And although only 1 shot should be critiqued, I feel like I missed a golden (pardon the pun) opportunity, so here's another shot that's not working. (Could also be part of the Photo tips thread, showing the same scene using horixzontal and vertical framing.)

    I think it's missing depth of field.

    Here's one that demonstrates depth of field (but is by no means a
    good picture). This picture would have been better if the subject, the building, were more prominent.

    Whoops. Forgot. What I did was first focus on the building, holding focus,
    I moved the camera and took the picture.

    Thanks, that's my opinion too. I walked into the cornfield to avoid the unsightly left side of the field that was ruining the shot. But the corn was rather high. I thought I should shoot through it to frame the shot. That didn't work. I should have held the camera high, a little above the corn. If I had, the corn would have become a foreground carpet leading to the shack.

    At least, that's what I think. Also, there's no blue or green in the shot.
