Time to focus

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121: Focus on the Subject

Patti has given some tips so maybe I should see how I go using these ideas for inspiration

Using Leading Lines & Repeating Patterns – “The lines and patterns help draw us into the scene and guide our eyes towards the subject.”

Using Selective Focus – This technique helps the viewer focus on the subject

Using Colour – “In this case, the colors help draw our eyes to the main subject of the image.”

Using Contrast & Focusing on the Eyes – “Contrasts in color, patterns, textures, old and new, fast and slow (for example) can help guide our viewers to focus on the subject.”

Freezing the Action – “Our eyes are drawn to action and speed.”

Framing the Shot with Arches, Doorways, etc. – “A final technique to draw attention to our subject is to use doorways, arches, tunnels, and windows to create a frame around it”

  1. Remarkable shots, as always. I loved the green plants growing in the cracks between the bricks. Took several views to zero in to what it precisely was, but esthetically, it was riveting even when I just saw it as a pattern.

      1. Yes, I feel we have visited Portugal too little, it is a very beautiful country with tasty food and wine. And lovely people. Difficult language though. I understand some Spanish, but Portuguese is so different.
