Birdhouse

Tried my hand at Manual mode for Aperture setting and Shutter speed for this picture. I liked the look and the detail of this birdhouse. Wanted to capture the sunlight like it was at that time. Did a f/5.6 aperture setting and a 1/60 s shutter speed. Pretty basic i guess. Looking forward to feedback and critisicm so i can get better.
It's a nice shot!

whata cool birdhouse! I really like this photo, I think the light and focus seem just right. I'm doing the camera settings challenge too and I've already learned a few things :)

It's very nice. And 5.6 aperture gave you a great DOF which brings out the birdhouse.

Beautiful light in this shot - I think the settings worked quite well.

Very cool learning experience. @paintdipper thank you @janets thank you. It was abeautiful morning. @marlboromaam Thank you. It is a very pretty birdhouse. This was at a friends house.

If this is your first attempt at manual you will have no problems. You captured the light beautifully and the focus and DOF are just right! Nice shot , Smitha!

@grammyn Thank you. I have taken pictures before in manual mode but not with the deliberation and effort on aperture settings as on this one.. I generally focus on capturing the 'moment' and this was more an attempt in learning aperture and shutter speed control. 365 is amazing, I learn so many new things to do with camera everyday from pro photographers like you.. Inspiring people, inspiring site....thank you.

@smithak You are way to kind but I am anything but a pro! I still have so much to learn too. I just started a little ahead of you

You did good. The shot is nice, the birdhouse is clear and in focus and the background is there but not taking over. Nice work.
