Bush Roses

This composition is sophisticated. An immediate first step in such an image could have been cropping away the flower “edge” in the bottom left. After all it seems so much less important.


But instead, you obviously realized how important this is in first, getting the eyes to start in the lower left and rise up going to the center, balancing out the main cluster and creating a movement in perception, rising up positively, as if life if improving!

Whether or not you thought of this or even if my explanation is really how our attention works, this picture is effective and impressive, yet natural and non-demanding.

As a result, here’s a picture that has life as well as beauty.

Thanks so much for sharing!
