Beauty lies in the simplicity
Beauty lies in the simplicity. Isn’t it?
Strong contrasting foreground silhouetted against the bright and colorful sky makes for a simple but effective composition.
I did this composition back in the post-processing stage. Some compositions will not be very apparent when you are in the field. But, if you can learn to compose well in the post-processing stage, you’ll know what to do in the field, next time you see a similar scene.
White-bellied Blue Flycatcher
Here’s another photo of the White-bellied Blue Flycatcher that was taken seconds after the first one I posted a few days ago.
Here are few factors that are making this photograph compelling:
– The bird is colorful and attractive.
– There’s catch light in the eye.
– Head angle is nice.
– The secondary element (the perch) is interesting and forms a sweeping diagonally inclined curve which makes for a visually compelling element.
– Colorful background, which almost looks like a painting with a splash of color, adds to the already interesting composition.
– And the action – the bird is leaning forward just about to fly – adds the energy to this photo.
