Rocky outcrop

Rocks with plant in foreground 2
This photograph was taken at Portland bill. The rocks instantly took my attention but I wanted to capture its natural appeal in a unique way. That was when I spotted a little colourful plant which could form some foreground interest. I will write some more about foreground interest at a later date. I adjusted the brightness and contrast in Photoshop to get this final unique image. I originally kept the rocks in focus and left the plant out of focus but eventually chose manual mode and selected a shutter speed of 1/2000th second to allow an aperture of F4.8 and get a shallow depth of field allowing the foreground interest to draw the viewers eyes into the shot.
