Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Focus On The Subject

This week, Patti asks that we Focus on the Subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. She has even been kind enough to offer a few suggestions on how we can achieve this. So, following her example, here are a few shots that I hope illustrate her recommendations.

Framing the shot. Taken at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Leading lines and color. This is like a two-for-one, taken at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg.

Freezing the action. Buckingham Fountain in downtown Chicago.

The eyes have it. In this shot of my grandson’s lovely wife and their dog Crush, while Christianna appears to be gazing out into the distance, Crush has definitely spotted something interesting. (probably someone walking around with food.)

Selective focus. Zooming in on the butterfly throws the background out of focus and leaves us to marvel at one of nature’s beauties.

  1. Hi, Sue. I think your images work well for the challenge. The country lane at Spring Valley and the butterfly really stand out for me. Crush does look interested in something in the distance. Food? Another animal? He has an interesting face.

  2. These are all terrific Sue, and all fit the challenge beautifully. Crush looks like a real sweetheart and your butterfly is wonderfully crisp and clear. So hard to capture them holding still!
