A stunning pink and crimson gum blossom newly emerging. A dainty little caplet barely tipping off to the side. A charming and coy, “side glance.”
Side Glance – Attributes
I like this photo because – yes, it has pretty colors…. but it has excellent edges. Soft, medium and sharp Edges – where they are supposed to go.
The Focal Point, lucky me, is in the correct location. There is a very good ratio of tonal values, from palest lights to deep darks.
The photograph also has a very nice balance of Directional Lines in the composition. That is, it has Vertical lines, Horizontal lines, and Diagonal lines.
A quote I like, by philosopher Rene Descartes, pairs well with this photo:
“Hope is the desire of the soul
to be convinced that
the Dream will come True.”
