Photograph by Teuku Jody Zulkarnaen, (portfolio)
Location: North Sumatera, Indonesia (google maps) (wiki)
Date: 2010

Camera: Nikon D70 (amazon)
Focal Length: 70mm
Aperture: f/6.5
ISO/Film: 200
Shutter Speed: 1/125 sec

Note: Teuku Jody Zulkarnaen captured this photo in North Sumatera, Indonesia. Sumatera is known for growing coffee beans and exporting to the United States, but this picture shows a few field workers harvesting tea. Post processing was done on the photo to enhance the worker in the foreground, the distant lands and beautiful sky. Great capture and processing by Teuku!

Tip: Teuku used the rule of thirds (wiki) to provide interest with the worker in the foreground and the distant worker on the trail.  The rule of thirds can really add another dimension to your photo.  On your next compostion, try moving the main focal point to one of the thirds in the frame. This technique doesn’t apply to every single photo you take, but if you center your composition in your frame, do it with a purpose.
