| p.1 #5 · Learning to see differently...what is your take... |
#1 - The interest here is in the repeating pattern of the disks, but I find my eye distracted by all the other stuff in the frame. This edit isolates them as the focal point. I also pulled more detail out of the shadows...
#2 - It looks unbalanced and bottom heavy to me. Too much negative space with no detail. This crop appeals to me more. The sun is a natural focal point, but the light out on the pole pulls the eye over to the right past the cab of the tractor.
#3 - This one just doesn't appeal to me on any level. I didn't recognize the marks in the snow as a set of footprints and they don't form any strong pattern to follow. It would be more interesting if the person who made the tracks was seen receding into the background or some other focal point besides the tree.
#4 - Nine star burst from the sun but that's the only thing of interest in the shot. it would be a great background for a portrait subject in the foreground lit with flash with the sunburst over their shoulder, but as a scenic there's nothing interesting here.
#5 - Another great background which needs something interesting looming large the foreground as a focal point.
Of the set thing #1 is the winner in terms of giving me something interesting to look at and presenting a familiar object in an unusual way. I love shooting with my 10-22mm lens for that reason. It creates perspective I don't normally see by eye. #5 has the same interesting perspective by lacks the interesting content of #1.
