A place to think about composition in photography

Mixed verticals and strong lead in lines

See what you make of this one.



The first thing you notice is the shape of the trees emphasised by the repeating pattern

Then the strong lead in lines capture the eye.

  1. Just come across this picture again, and found myself doing what I did the first time I saw it, which is to tilt my head to the right and look at the picture in portrait format. It’s the twigs and leaves on the decking that unconsciously needed me to make sense of what I was seeing to a greater extent than I was willing to accept the prompt, and notice the pattern of the trees.

    An intriguing picture!

    Thanks, Adrian.

    • Hi Alastair,

      I’m glad the picture captured your attention. I’m planning to do more of these and make them less obvious.
