Focal Length:135mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:NIKON D80

Photographed @ The Botanical Garden, Ooty

I have got into the habit of phtographing in Aperture Priority mode with the aperture wide open (f/5.6 @ 135mm on my Nikon D80). This works well for me since I am shooting portraits of my family most of the time.

Photographing in the botanical garden in Ooty, I photographed a rose at my wife’s insistence, even though it was pointing away from the camera and I could get only a profile. Also, my lens was not good enough to zoom in for a macro shot.

Back at my PC at home, I noticed this creative cropping opportunity. The rose, which by itself was uninteresting, became much more interesting when contrasted with the other roses behind it which were well out of the depth of field.
