338th Show & Tell Competition: The importance of composition

Post Fri Oct 17, 2014 12:24 pm


Someone said very rightly:

“ Composition is a way of guiding the viewer’s eye towards the most important elements of your work, sometimes – in a very specific order.
A good composition can help make a masterpiece even out of the dullest objects and subjects in the plainest of environments.
On the other hand, a bad composition can ruin a photograph completely, despite how interesting the subject may be.
A poorly judged composition is also not something you can usually fix in post-processing, unlike simple and common exposure or white balance errors.”

In this competition I’d be happy to see your best examples of a personalized and effective composition of every kind of photography, from portraiture to still life, from landscape scenes, to candid street life.
You have a broad choice of subjects, according to your personal liking.

My criterion of choice won’t be based on the subject, but strictly on the composition of the picture.

I have a lot to learn on this topic, so the photos of mine I post here below are not to be considered good examples at all, but they are just to give an idea of what I mean, even though I didn’t manage to achieve any special talent in composition yet.









Thank you for joining the competition.
I look forward to seeing and enjoying your photos.

Submissions will be closed on Friday the 24th of October 2014 at 12:24:17 UTC
