i sought of know wat u mean....there can be 3 subjects in the scene......i was trying to capture the whole scene by itself.......ScoobaKev said:What's the subject? Is there one?
ya man.....good tip.......thxScoobaKev said:To put it figuratively, there needs to be a 'cake' firstly- a prominent subject that captures the attention of the viewer. For eg. one of your previous photos had the lionfish. Even though it was not well-lit, there was something for the viewer to focus on. Start with that, then work out how you want to compose it, light it etc... or add in other secondary subjects.
i tink if it gets wider, it will be more lack of focus...........antacid said:i think its not wide enough.
the foreground takes up alot of the picture (almost 2/3) and seems to suggest there's something interesting in there. so i hunt and search but nothing.
plus the shadow top right looks like something of interest, but alas, i can't make out what it is. is it a manta? or a catamaran? heh.
::from the perspective of a non-expert viewer::
no worries....any comments or examples are most welcome.............thx.........WhyZzzzzz said:perhaps the main subject is the yellow sponge coral and you were trying to place it using the 3rds rule. If the yellow sponge was more exposed (brighter) , your pic will have more focus.
not trying to hijack ur thread, but at least give you some idea.
