Toy car

Toy car

This is from outside the kindergarten of the previous shots. In situations like this, I like to use a large-aperture lens to be able to limit the noisy background from the subject itself. I didn’t have such a lens with me, and the kit-lens is barely able to do a good-enough job in this image. I’d like the background to be even more blurred, to make the rusty toy car pop out.

Update: I was looking at the photo again, and realized I can pump the saturation of the toy car to make it stand out from the background better. So now here is a new—more tampered-with—version of the photo.

Note, this is part of a longer series of Czernobyl, which starts here.
