Brick by brick by pistache

Brick by brick

Didn't have to go far for this as it's in our garden. I've tried to do it justice before and never been happy. Still think the background may be rather intrusive but I liked the texture and colour of the bricks in late afternoon sunshine. There's another wall over at http://365project.org/pistache/365
I love the way this shot pulls out the textures of the wall and the way the focus sweeps through the image.

I love the DOF on this and all the textures.

I get what you mean about the background, but I think you have done a great job of blurring it. Love the textures in this.

I like this one much more than the other - this one is much more "intimate", and it seems to glow with color. The details also seem to add interest to it, and I like the square crop.

I can see what you mean about the background. It might be that if brought the angle of view out just a little more, you'd still have a small slice of the background (which does have a nice bokeh and texture to it) and more of the wall. I think it's a good shot.

I love the narrow depth of field, very effective

Lovely bricks, very pretty. The shot pulls the viewer in, I want to see the rest of that wall.

@rob24 @sgtpepper @brigette @jetr @vera365 @ribbet9 @gabi_in_oregon @juliethephotographer @slash Thank you for taking the time to comment.
@ukandie1 @olivetreeann Thanks for your thoughts re background - it may well be the angle, and perhaps also that there's more light on the background than the brick, so the eye is drawn there first?
