201 of 365 for 2009 – Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed

I like this photo but it is also a good lesson in background, background, background. The gate in the background is distracting and the post in the bottom left corner is also annoying. Recomposing this scene could have minimized those distractions, or a little zooming. This is also where a large aperture lens would have helped and I could have blurred the background and taken it out of the scene in a sense. Always lots to learn!

  1. To me, neither of these objects are distracting – the open gate symbolizes that they are about to start their new life together and I didn’t even notice the post. Guess it’s a matter of perspective. Like how you did the black and white – that sometimes takes out some of the busy details.

  2. this is lovely! congrats to them!

  3. You are right, but still a lovely photo.
