I am going through some photos of a trip to Washington this past spring and remember how cold and rainy/snowy it was. Even the Ho rain forest had snow! Here is a feeling of the weather we endured. It was getting dark out and I decided on the 30 sec exposure and am wondering if in that 30 seconds the tripod sunk a little and that's why the right side of the wood isn't as sharp as the majority of the image or did I mess up the focus? Hmmm? Thanks for looking and C&C's always wanted.

Wow, it's a really cool piece of driftwood MJ. You have effectively a monochromatic image here that is nicely punctuated by the the orange/red of the wood - a complimentary colour scheme that works well. I'd say that it is more a focus issue than the tripod sinking, as the whole image would be out of focus if that were the case. Scott

Thank you all for the kind comments. I'm going to work on my focus technique after really looking at this picture. After I've thought about it I didn't need the huge depth of field with the background being what it is and the 30 sec exposure. Thanks MJ

This is like a piece of sculpture, the likes of Henry Moore coming to mind. FWIW, my wife and I visited western Canada in June-July, and we heard from several locals that the amount of driftwood was unusually high. Last year’s tsunami in Japan was the primary culprit, we were told, as much of the driftwood was not American.
