|A so-so photo of the grapes, lacking a focal point.|
Second try--better focal point, but still too busy.
Final photograph--focus on the subject, background reduced to a blur.

Exploring with Your Camera-Process of Elimination
This mon's topic for Ecploring With Your Camera is "process of elimination"--the paring down of the distracting elements in the photo frame to make a so-so shot into a "photograph". Ideally this should be done with the camers itself, and not in post processing. I recently found myself doing just this as I tooh dome photos of a neighbor's grape arbor. This arbor is also home to a climbing rose. is chock-s-block with a hydrangea tree andthe ground is planted heavilt with coneflowers, bkack eyes Susans and other flowers.
