A place to think about composition in photography

Composing with Colour Harmony

I noticed these beehives at Hartwell House and felt an instant attraction.

The gentle shades of colour of the hives compliment the rich texture of the background of the brick wall.

This was a day when I set out not really expecting to capture a good picture, it was overcast, a bit dull and raining.  These lighting conditions suit this subject perfectly bringing out the textures and letting the colours do the work.

Some people recommend using an odd number of elements in any composition.  I would challenge that view.  The even number of elements (4 hives) seems to work quite well for me, what do you as the viewer think, please leave a comment to tell me.
