Symmetry - Roses Amongst Vines by Ally Green

April 2021 - Symmetry - Roses Amongst Vines

About the Image(s)

In Argentina while visiting the wineries in Mendoza I saw this beautiful rose amongst the vines. I liked the contrast of the color of the rose against the vines and the leading lines they provided to the Andes in the distance.
I just processed a bit in Color Efex Pro to make the colors pop.

These nice straight rows lead to the perfect vanishing point. Placing the subject up front adds drama to the roses. Often, the leading lines take the viewer to the distance, making the subject less important. This almost looks as though the same image was flipped horizontally because everything is so perfectly aligned. This is lovely.   Posted: 04/10/2021 17:25:44

This looks so symmetrical that it almost looks fake! But that centered post with flowers looks so real. An amazing scene to find and to capture in this way. I am a little bothered with a feeling of the earth being slightly tilted to the right, due to the horizon line and the leaning posts in the field. Popping the colors adds to the dazzling impact, especially the reds.   Posted: 04/19/2021 22:11:00

Very interesting image. The vines and posts in the background really brings out the roses. You could almost pretend the roses are in charge of the vineyard. My eyes really focuses on the roses. I do see the mountains/hills in the background. The colors really come out.   Posted: 04/20/2021 00:08:08

Another beautiful shot! When you use 2 primary colors (red and green) the image really pops. I suggest deleting about one inch of the sky to give the foreground more prominence. I understand what Carole is saying about the right corner but it doesn't bother me because the roses are so dominant and hold my eye.

Thanks Barbara...yes i should have thought about cropping out a bit more of the sky so thank you for your suggestion :)   Posted: 04/21/2021 13:10:42
