Green but Empty
I am willing to bet that if you are looking at this photo, you are probably thinking that this is in a secluded place somewhere in the countryside and your probably wondering why somebody would leave such a beautiful place and go somewhere else. If that is the feeling you got then I have succeeded as this is the reason why I chose this particular composition.
In actuality, this is near a very busy street and only a few miles away from downtown. You would not know it by looking at this photo which is one of the reasons why I think composition is so important in photography. On the other hand, if the composition of a photograph is weak, then the photo as whole will be weak. Good composition is the base of a good photograph.
I think Ansel Adams said it best - "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept"
