Water Edge at Merritt Park, Dundalk: This photograph has poor composition. It has no real focal point. Although the lines of the water contribute to the movement, as it forces your eyes to focus on the rocks and tall grasses. It is not a good use of space though because there is no real dominance or unity. All togehter, not appealing.
Leaf at Marina Point Park, Jappatowne: This photo has good composition. The diagonal veins in the lead and the lines in the wood show good varaition, yet repitition. The shape of the leaf takes up the whole space and the color is incredibly vibrant, showing dominace. The texture of the wood and the water beads on the leaf are very balanced. Again, the lines in the grain of wood and veins in the leaf contribute to the visual movement of this piece. Very powerful.
Swan at Marina Point Park, Jappatowne: This image has good composition. It is a good use of space because the swan isn't "jailed in". The color contrast between the bright white swan and rich dark water is good. Though, there is no real variety in the photograph. It does show good focal point and dominance. The horizontal lines in the waves show movement and repitition. Personally, I absolutely love this photograph because you can actually see the beads of water running down the swans head. How grand is that?
