Patrick… For this, you had a large aperture opening of f/3.5 which, I suspect is the widest you had available. You didn’t need it wide open as your shutter speed is fast at 1/2500 sec. A higher aperture setting (smaller opening) would have given you a wider depth of field so that more of the photo would have been in sharper focus. I know that these are the things that are easy to think about after seeing the resulting picture. Not so easy when you are actually taking the shot.

The D500 has settings for Picture Control. If you have your’s set to “Standard”, you might try “Vivid” for more “pop” to your pictures. You can do this in post processing as well, if you have the time. Do you have a post processing program that you use?

In this photo, I do like the composition and the leading line of the pathway to the building. The two chairs also bring you in and invite you to sit and rest for awhile.

I’d make your logo a bit less conspicuous. It is an unnecessary distraction. It is fairly easy to change it’s color depending on the picture so that it blends in with the photo, but can still be read.

I agree with Mandrake, you probably should have used f8 or f11 for this photo. it should be enough to get everything on focus with wide angle lens. When you use Aperture Priority mode, you set your aperture and the camera sets your shutter speed. If you set your aperture to f/3.5, camera set your shutter speed accordingly to balance the light – which in your case was 1/2500. If you would have used smaller aperture, your shatter speed would be slower too.

Yes Oksana and Mandrake;
Both are right I find or found the notes of the reazan I did that way all this day I make several or almost all shot in aperture priority to test the lens, I will post others later.
Thanks a lot for the comments
