  #166 Balance: A Composition Tool
Entry 23 of 27
   
 
Dog from behind the leaves       ©2015 bryanshoots
Panasonic DMC-LX7       22nd place, 16 points
1/40s, f2.3, ISO 200, 90mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Adjust curves and cropped       Extra Info: The sharp focused dog is balanced with out of focus leaves. I also cropped it where I placed the dog at the bottom right to show small area of fine detail in large area of negative space.

    Makes my favs just because I think it is kind of a cute idea! Would have been nice to see both eyes clearly.

    I tend to see balance in composition and for that reason the large bit of out of focus with the cropped eyes seems unbalanced to me. And the dog freaks me out to be honest.

    I like the idea; however, I think the large expanse of green is somewhat overwhelming, causing the dog to get lost. Perhaps a tighter cropping would help.

    Looks like a cute dog. I would like to see more of it.

    I find that the blurred foreground is too prominent and upsets the balance between it and the detail in the dog. Perhaps more of the dog would have created a better balance.

    Clever idea. Balance is fine, but so much out of focus diminishes the appeal for me.

    I think you balanced the composition well, however I do find the shallow depth of field a little bothersome, but mainly because it is the foreground and background at the same time, and the DOF drop off is so sudden to the subject. Either way well done for keeping my attention!

    a frame of the leaves with a bit more dog
or you could have just framed with the eye of the dog larger but i6t might not have stood still long enough
