Riverside Park Tulips

tulips

 

It is generally considered a poor idea to have a dominant out-of-focus foreground element in an image.  Our eyes naturally start with the closest elements in view. When we look at an image like this and see at that first blurry tulip just to the right off-center, it’s a bit disorienting.

But I liked the way those 2 in-focus tulips relate to one another from this exact angle. And this is not my garden where I would have felt entitled to bend that front tulip out of the way and risk damaging it. So here we are.

I’m not bad at composition, I’m just so damn ethical.

    Personally, I like when we break rules like this – makes the image a bit more artistic and personal. Lovely colors too!ReplyCancel
