Pinecone

By Haley
I do realize that the green is cut off. I did not do this on purpose. I was trying to flee the woods as soon as possible because I was hearing strange noises in the woods (which ended up being just my dad trying to scare me-and it worked) This shot was taken in a hurry before I fled from the woods.

It can be hard to make this type of subject stand out. I like the background it gives a sense of depth and I like the pale colours above the trees in the distance. I think the image is cut off by the branch in the front, it doesn't lead the viewer into the shot you have to pear over it. I think it might be because the two ends on the right are cut off. Maybe moving to the right slightly and allowing us to see past rather than through. I am guessing you were attracted by the colour and shapes and I see why. Do you need to define what the main subject is? Is it the red or the green? If it's the red then a move to the left to bring that more into the frame. All depends on what is off to the right of the shot. I just think a slightly different composition may help. Sorry that all sounds very negative. You have demonstraighted in your PF that you have a good eye so please don't take my comments as being anything more than my personal observations. Looking forward to seeing more from you. Andy

Hey Haley, thank you for taking the time to look through my PF. You really did go back in time finding that one of the cows! Thanks. Andy
