I've been trying to decide whether it would be better to crop out the poles along the right side. Any thoughts or comments?
Hi Roland, I think the poles could be effectively used as a leading line, but it is usually better to have a leading line lead somewhere interesting in the composition. Here, I feel that the line leads to a less interesting part of the background on the right. This is counterbalanced somewhat by the lines formed by the clouds, which lead to the more interesting mountains on the left. With the poles so far against the right edge of the composition, I feel that your choices would have been (1) to make the poles a more prominent part of the composition, in which case they would be better if they weren't so close to the edge, or (2) to have chosen a composition which excludes the poles. I think, for a scene like this, your best choice for a foreground would have been to get closer to an interesting group of flowers, making them larger and more prominent in the image frame, and to use them as a foreground. I hope this helps!
@Ian Plant Thanks Ian. This is the sort of feedback I was looking for. I did try to find a better angle to use the poles as a better leading line but couldn't find one to take me to the interesting area. I can see how making the flowers more prominent would make the scene more engaging. Thanks again.
@Roland Tuley Glad I could help!
