The Sun on Lanterns
I've written about this before, but there are many ways to bring visual image to a photograph. There's the rule of thirds, the use of leading lines and altered perspective, and there's also manipulation of foreground, middleground, and background to create interest via visual layers. The photo below is an example of the last method and even retains a bit of the second. The lanterns hang in focus, illuminated by the golden rays of a setting sun, while bridge just beyond leads the eye toward the background. That action takes the viewer back toward the middle, where the Riverbelle Terrace beyond finishes off the composition. It's a bit of a optical journey, but I kind of like the way this photo turned out. What do you think?
