Lesson 3

This week's assignment was on composition. I thought it was better to go on and post something, rather than to wait for "that perfect shot."

Actually.. i'd intended for the focal point of this image to be the little yellow water lilies, and if they were brighter, it might have worked better. I do like the lines and the division of the image.

The focal point here is the giraffe's face. I like how i got good focus there and somewhat softer focus for the bg. Of course, the lines of the neck leading to the head.. that's always convenient. ;)

This was a natural for a vertical orientation.

Here, the lines are mostly horizontal, and the divisions are by color. I like the foreground grasses and the city building in the background.
