Contrast of content
Having too much of one theme in a photograph can sometimes be ok but is ok good enough?
Try introducing a contrast of content as well as colour in a picture and you can improve the composition and make it more interesting.
In this first picture you’ll see the contrast between the door, the bottle and the brush, boldly human artefacts. the flowers in the pots add a splash of contrasting colour as well as a natural touch.
These photographs were taken a few days ago at Parceval Hall in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales. A lovely place.
In the comparison picture I moved a little to the right
Can you see how the brush is now a distraction and not part of the composition.
The overall effect is nice , partly because your attention is brought more explicitly to the reducing height of the pots that echo the steps on the left of the photograph but I prefer the first picture as there is more interest. The bottle brush and door bring the human presence into the imagination, I wonder who lives there?
