In my previous entry which you can read here, I posted three images all of the same subject but with differing compositions, aspect ratios etc. I received some interesting feedback so I have decided to post four more versions which reflect some of the comments made.
This first shot again features three groynes but I have moved round so the groynes in the background are no longer in the frame.
This second shot is the same as yesterdays image but instead of a 5:4 aspect ratio it is now 3:2.
Again the same file as I posted yesterday but it was suggested that I move the groyne slightly to the right instead of it being centrally placed in the frame.
And finally the same image as the one above but instead of a 1:1 aspect ratio it is now 5:4.
For comparison here are smaller thumbnails of the three versions I posted yesterday.
I think this selection of images demonstrates a number of points. Firstly that its worth taking a good number of frames when on location unless you are very confident about the finished image you have in mind. Secondly the various permutations are endless and these images concentrate on composition, aspect ratio etc, we haven’t even touched on processing. Thirdly, whilst I try and crop in camera, sometimes it pays to have some additional space around the subject so that other crops are possible. And lastly isn’t photography and being creative good fun? I think so!
Thanks to all those who responded to the first post – additional comments would be most welcome.
