April Showers bring....

...mosses and fungi.  :)

Took this two nights ago.  I went out because the fog was coming in and the moon was up.  I was hoping that the combination would lend itself to some good shots, but the timing of the two didn't work well until it was too dark.  So I did other things instead, including this.

I have been asked on more than one occasion if I always use tight focal planes.  The answer is no, but I do tend to favor them when shots have a singular defined subject, or multiple subjects in the same plane.  I do this because that is how your brain interprets the data being sent to it by your eyes, which makes for a more natural looking image, especially when you see them in person in larger formats than you do via computer. 

I highly encourage people to visit art museums in person rather than just browsing galleries online for just that reason.  You are missing a very important element of the work if you are not seeing it first hand!
