I am participating in week #4 of Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge. This week’s topic is ‘simplicity.’
The weather has been dreary around here, so I decided to search my archives for photos depicting ‘simplicity.’ I enjoy macro photography, so I struggled to find photos with subjects that didn’t fill the frame or showcase intricate petals, stems, pollen, and antennae.
I finally selected the four photos below. Each photo has one main subject that doesn’t take up more than 1/4 of the photo, and the void spaces highlight the subjects. I sharpened the photos and increased the saturation slightly.
Black & White: Turning the photo below into black and white simplifies this photo and gives it more character.
Cropped: In the first photo, the duck blends into the scenery. By cropping the noise, the duck becomes the main subject.
I really enjoyed this week’s challenge and I learned a lot. Thanks for viewing my post!
