Rural landscapes: the near & far view
BARN AND OLD TRUCK, NEAR DRUMHELLER, ALBERTA
It was -25c when I spotted this old truck along the road and realized it would make a compelling photo when contrasted with the newer, maintained barn in the distant background. The key was going with a shallow depth of field so the barn would be just enough out-of-focus that it would complement, rather than compete with the truck for your primary attention. Here’s the colour version: http://bit.ly/TruckAndBarn.
