A postcard from Copenhagen

A beautiful rose garden across the moat from a striking castle has to attract attention of any traveler. Some people just want to stop and smell the roses. Others find wide range of possibilities for shallow depth of field.

Copenhagen, Denmark

In truth, shallow depth is far from my strongest suit. I understand the mechanics of wide apertures, long focal lengths, and short focused distances well enough, but I lack patience to examine the resulting shots and adjust my position or settings in order to get the picture right.

But in some instances I get exactly what I want, such as the shot above that was taken in the rose garden of Copenhagen’s Kongens Have in the shade of Rosenborg Castle.

I should probably practice more to get these types of shots more frequently.

If you are ever in Copenhagen, Rosenborg Castle and its surrounding park are among the top places to visit, for my money.
