QUOTED IMAGE

Very tasteful PP with the light and shadow. I only noticed because it was so good.

I really like this set but this one grabbed my attention the most. Now if I can figure out why, I might recognize similar compositions when shooting people. Thanks for posting.

Well, I have one idea, not that it explains the whole appeal. Hands point. In this case, they point to faces, which automatically draw our attention for obvious evolutionary reasons: there's a lot of information in faces. (I've just been rereading Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell.) Plus, the hands and forearms alone, ignoring all other elements, make a kind of dance as they progress from left front to right rear, all posing at different angles.

Then there's the placement of darks and lights, but surely the photographer can say more about that than I can.


PRONOUN ADVISORY: OhLook is a she. | A FEW CORRECT SPELLINGS: lens, aperture, amateur, hobbyist, per se, raccoon, whoa, more so (2 wds.), shoo-in | Comments welcome

Now that you mention it I see that too. Thank you.

Just got around to processing more of my vacation pictures from Rocky Mountain NP in late July. This shot was taken in the rain. The hill in the foreground was a few miles away.
