About the Image(s)

This image suggests a view of a private place. It is also a study in composition. There are a number of leading lines that may draw your eyes into the scene. I'm curious to get everyone's reactions to it.

You are correct an interesting study on composition. I like the triangles and leading lines. I would like to see this shot under different lighting conditions. The sun coming through the trees becomes a little distracting but the shadows are also interesting when you look at just the shadows.   Posted: 10/02/2019 10:31:56

You are correct about the diagonal line of the fence. It also has the color to attract the eye. I do get your feeling of a Private Place since I feel like I've wandered down somebody's driveway by mistake.   Posted: 10/02/2019 13:34:40

Good instructional image. So many components lead you into the scene and in particular to the door next to the garage.   Posted: 10/05/2019 19:33:00

Like Dave, I was drawn to the door (gate) beside the garage which is closed. This adds to the "private" nature of the scene.The strongest lines lead to that gate so one wonders what is hidden back there. Lots of possible stories.   Posted: 10/08/2019 14:02:10

Like the shadows, yellow flowers, red fence and red square in one of garage door windows. Closed gate and garage doors do say private and stay away.   Posted: 10/16/2019 16:34:02
