Had some fun with backlit lavender last weekend.

Diagonal composition probably not the best choice...

Lavender needles/leaves. No movement in this one, just shallow DOF.

My apologies that these are pointing in the wrong direction (left), I could have cheated and flipped them...

Comments and critiques most welcome.

Jonathan...I like it...I even like the diagonal direction they are leaning. The first one is really beautiful. Wish I could smell it!

Why not? Jonathan, these are very nice. The first one meets one of the "rules of composition" perfectly.

What's this about l-r vs r-l? It's the 2nd time I've heard mention of it.

Thanks Kevin.

I have had criticism previously about the 45 degree angled composition, from the purist perspective I was told. I have to say I am not a purist, nor a theorist, I just go with the flow and whatever looks right (not left :wink:) to me.

As for the l-r vs. r-l, it's one of those "look right" thing. If I could get the image to align to the right edge of the post, then the subject would be pointing into the page which makes it look more natural for the presentation. As it is the images are aligned more towards the left hand side of the page, thus pointing out of the page. (I did mention I am not a purist didn't I? or was it theorist? ... :?)

Regards,
Jonathan
