So I wasn't really happy with any pictures today....
This first was a beautiful sunset as viewed from the sidewalk up to our front porch. I only had a minute to get the shot since my daughter was inside, alone, and banging on the window for me to come back in (not to mention I didn't have shoes on and my feet were freezing). The colors were awesome but I didn't really know what to focus on. When I tried a smaller (or is it bigger) aperture (F/6.3) it just seemed a jumbled mess of dark branches. So I tried to open up my aperature and focus on a nearby tree that was close, small and relatively simple so that the background would be a "Bokeh" of sorts of sunset colors. I didn't exactly get the photo to match the vision in my head.

So then I tried to practice something else for a little bit.
This is what you do, when you want to try something and your only willing subject is a stuffed rabbit. Need I say more...?
