A Side Glance: Friday’s Photograph

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.

Click on those links above,    and/or    (type in  “edges”   and  “lines”  in my Search box)   for  further explanations  & clarification of how they create a better image possible.

 

 

 

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.”

  1. Just love this perfect image and the way you’ve described it’s composition and make up.
    Is there a painting in the future inspired by this beauty? I hope so.
    Love those gorgeous magentas – pretty sure they’d go so nicely with white and your favourite cobalt teal 😉

    1. this one would demand, a lot more time than I currently have to offer it.
      But, perhaps at some stage.
      In mixed media though, as watercolor would not deliver what I feel is being asked from the subject.

      1. mixed media is great, returning to fix up my tonal issues with white or black ink splatter can be quite fun.
        And the oil pastels….. I used to detest them, til I bought a Sennelier. my gosh, these are like lipstick!! wonderful!
