Photographed on a rainy day with an umbrella in one hand and camera in the other, stabilization is great on the little Lumix!

However, with a wide-open aperture and relatively high ISO, details aren’t as sharp as I’d like. I went back to the same location this morning with the Nikon under overcast skies, but color was nothing like that first day. I’ll have to try again when it’s drizzling, using a rain sleeve to protect the camera—hopefully before the tree leafs out much more.

Panasonic DMC-FZ40; f3.4 @ 1/15 sec, ISO 400 (handheld);
Focal length: 17.5mm (97mm EFL)

  1. A urban poem. A frail tree in the city in front of a brick wall and a small city park (or garden) with its trees -top of the picture – For me, essentially the city life. Nature surviving in towns.
    I enjoy this picture a lot. I have the feeling that your image is an archetype of THE TOWN.

  2. That you are moved to comment on associations rather than composition means to me that this is a successful image. 🙂

    Too, you articulate some things I felt but had not put into words.

    Thank you, Micheline.
