imagecraft bootcamp – keystoning

This post is a response to the tough new challenge from Mitch Zeissler, Imagecraft Bootcamp, which is hosted on his own site Exploratorius and on Lucile’s bridging lacunas.

My original image was shot with my Nikon D700 with Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 lens set at 16mm, ISO 3600, 1/125s and f/4. The image was a ‘throw away’ from a set of images I captured for a previous post (the) walking (with the) dead

My intention was to focus on the stone table and funerary urn at the back of the shot. The images below show how I progressed from the original untidy image to the image that I wanted.

Of course, had I attached my 70-200mm zoom in the first place then I might have captured the same thing in camera.

But it’s the taking part that counts, right?
