This particular shot was taken with the date/time stamp. Sometimes we just aren’t thinking straight. It’s not like we are going to print these out or anything, so why save the date. I like the commercials with ALL the photos stored in the camera, it’s just handy right?
Anyway, the composition on this piece is awesome, but the horizontal balance could use a little loosing up. There are so many different shapes in the composition, that the formal and almost exact amount of sky, middle, and bottom makes this feel “locked” up. Luckily by cropping the date/time out, and a couple of rear ends of people on the right, it really loosened up the stiff horizontal lines making it flow much nicer. It also put the focal point, which is the “Ball Tree” just where it needs to be…the focal point! Ta! Da!
Enjoy. I might just make this one into a “canvas print” and hang on my wall. Oh wait, it doesn’t belong to me!!!!
