I found this place while strolling near the pond just behind Karlsruhe Palace. Since the composition is pretty straight forward, I thought even somebody like me should be able to get a pretty good picture without much effort — missed by far! I spent almost 30 minutes crouching in the grass, waiting for people to stand a this point. I almost had given up all hope when suddenly this girl and her daddy showed up... Well, despite having had half an hour for pre-focusing, the image's focus of course was on the leaves, and not on the kid... darned!

During post-processing I somehow tried to fix that misfocus by applying some focus blur on the leaves... this improved the image a lot since they were quite contrasty and drew someone's attention away from the kid.
