double chimneys by pistache

double chimneys

grey old soggy day but i made myself take a walk after lunch. with the 75-300mm and the crystal seahorse omni filter. i see people on instagram taking fantastic photos with the omnis - several of them live in california and have constant access to light - but it sure makes me search out what little light is available to us in the uk in january :) not the perfect composition as i ignored the rule of thirds to keep the background in
wow, that's gorgeous. Really love the effect.

Well I'm all for breaking the rules when you end up with an image like this, it's fabulous.

The background makes it all. The diagonal composition and the soft tones are perfect.

Great focusing, and a lovely atmospheric background.Fav☺️

you did wonders with this grey old soggy day and I love the outline of those buildings behind the berries, with the chiimneys stepping downwards. The grey soft focus backdrop is a perfect contrast to the sharp bright shiny berries.

There are times when the Rule of Thirds can be broken and it doesn't "hurt" the picture. This is one of them. Actually what you have going on here is the "Golden Triangle" which divides the picture diagonally from corner to corner and then again from one corner to the center of the diagonal line. In your picture the first diagonal follows the branch and berries; the second diagonal follows the roof line of the first faint building in the background which in spite of "breaking" the first rule, you've landed a nicely composed shot with interest in both the fore and background. So there you go! fav

I just LOVE this!! Fav +++++

Fav.

Gorgeous, Clare!! Your instinct in keeping the composition is spot-on for how this image communicates to the viewer. Now I want a seahorse Omni, too! But I think it takes more than owning one to be able to create such an artistic image.
January 14th, 2021  
sweet focus!
January 14th, 2021  
Your composition is spot-on Clare and you have produced a wonderfully moody image. Me being me I would have gone for a gritty film-noir look in B & W but this is an easy Fav as is.

@olivetreeann @jyokota thank you! afraid i didn't consciously think about the diagonal composition but i guess something pleased me about it ;)
@vignouse you make a good point richard. i'll have to give it a try ;)

This is a very interesting shot. I like Ann H. Lefevre's analysis of your photo.
January 16th, 2021  
I love the contrast.

Breathtaking

Lovely separation.Is this with a PRO lens or the inexpensive 75-300
January 17th, 2021  
Spectacular

@delboy207 it's the normal, inexpensive 75-300. really like it for close-ups. my 12-40mm is the pro, but i got that second-hand and it's worked great
