Chestnuts in the wild

I had just followed the first two lessons of the course, and had the opportunity to try to make the best out of them. While being out in the woods, I spotted some chestnuts still on the tree (fairly common around this time of year where I live: Northern Italy), so I decided to picture them also showing part of the environment they grow in. I had to find an acceptable compromise between what to show and what to hide (using appropriate focal length), as well as chosing a focal point for the subject and a depht of field that could attract the eye on it, while showing enough - and with a sufficient detail - of the natural chaos that surrounds it!
