This year, start of my 3rd year into photography and all I want to learn is composition, so I hope I'm heading in the right direction...
Since December 2010 my camera has been in and out repair via AC Foto & Canon - very annoying but nothing much I can do and in all honesty I would rather a 100% working 5D Mark II.
This weekend I was loaned a Canon EOS 7D to keep up with my 52 week project (photo a week for 1 year) and I must say it really is an awsome camera. The ergonomics, AF system and small features the 5D Mark II does'nt have really do stand out, if only it was FF. Anyways, I'm sure all you 7D owners know how fantastic it is so I wont go on..
The weather here in Germany changes from +10c to -5c in less than 24 hours, it's been like this for the past few weeks and on some day's makes photography less than interesting but this Sunday just gone I did manage an hour out with my son and to keep on top of my project.
I first spotted this location back in November when taking a family drive past Delbrück, the tree line is about 1 km long, freshly planted trees give it more possibilities to capture with many different compositions and in summer this will be a great location for more captures..
Apologies for the heavy black border but this is how I present my photos on Flickr - on my website I do not use borders..
This is shot number 5 towards a 52 week project (Scapes for a year). Right of Way, nothing special really - weather here is very dull hence the mono conversions..
My son was bored so we had to move fast back to the car, took this shot before getting into the car..

An old couple take a walk along a country path near to Delbruck / Paderborn / Germany.
I got into conversation with them shortly before and told them I would photograph them once they had come into composition.

Final shot, bridging the 2 shot's above is this curve that follows a narrow stream..
