The Old Mcdougall church

Digital SLR Photography - - Expert Critique - by Moe Ali Haimour

Canon EOS 7D Mk II with EF- S 10- 18mm f/ 4.5- 5.6 IS STM lens. Ex­po­sure: 1/ 250sec at f/ 9 ( ISO 100).

What we think: Moe ex­plains that he shot this hand­held af­ter spot­ting the church from the high­way – it was well worth the de­tour we would say! There are strong com­po­si­tional el­e­ments at play here – the cen­tral, sym­met­ri­cal com­po­si­tion, the di­ag­o­nal lead- in lines and the con­trast in colour be­tween the dry, orange grass and the blue sky above. Some might have been tempted to use a longer fo­cal length to com­press per­spec­tive, but the unique field- of- view of­fered by an ex­treme wide- an­gle works won­ders here.
