Fixing our morning coffee, this view through our kitchen window caught my eye. I rushed to get my camera and capture the moment. Should I use a shallow DOF and just capture the subject or use a narrow aperture to grab the ice on the window and the tree through the crystal vase? What is my subject … the ice, the crystal vase, or the tree within the vase? I tried several different approaches and chose to focus on the tree in the vase and maintain a moderate depth of field to highlight the shape and lines of the vase. I thought the ice on the window distracted from the main image, so I subdued it with a white vignette.
