Nikon D7000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 12mm, f/13, ISO 100

While exploring this room for the second time, I realized I had images from the first visit unprocessed on my hard drive back home. With that in mind, I decided to plop my tripod down and experiment with some additional frames. I was attracted to this yellow/green chair in the foreground but at the same time, the sunlight was shining directly into the window in the background. This was making it very difficult to capture an image without lens flare!  I’m not sure how well this image will resonate with you. But there’s something about the chair in the foreground that I really like. With that said, I could of shot this with a wider aperture bringing more focus to the chair. I decided not to because the front of my lens was really close to the chair. Even at f/13, it still diffuses the background just enough to bring more attention to the foreground. Yet, it still allows the eye to dance from that window back to the chair
