Doing more with pictures in 2012…

332 – Through A Window


I like this picture.  It’s probably crap.  It’s split right in half, no rule of thirds appled here…I guess it could’ve been a good one for the Breaking The Rules theme…  This was a neat vista to me but the dry grass was the same color as the concrete walls and trying to oversaturate the colors had a poor effect.  So I subdued it even further which I think added to the moodiness of the scene:  the broken building, the graffiti, the desolate scenery, the monsoon-dampened sky…

That bridge runs over the headwaters of the Verde River, and the view from the other side of this building used to be Sullivan Lake, which is now dry except briefly in floods (see link).

  3. Some rules are just made to be broken and I think you have framed the view from this window very well.

  6. I like your natural stone framing here and as others have said, you can use artistic license with photography “rules”.
