52 Week Photography Challenge 2013: Week One  Monthly Theme: Composition

Botanical Kauai

I’ve started up with a new Photography Challenge over on Michael The Maven’s web site.  This is my Week One entry.  The theme for this month is Compositional Rules.  

I shot this on the Island of Kauai in December.  When I was shooting, I had the Rule of Thirds in mind as I was framing it up.  I purposely left the lower right corner “empty”.  In post, I did crop just a bit to bring the white flower in line with the Golden Spiral, and the rest of the photo more in line with the Rule of Thirds.  I did do a bit of tweaking with clarity and vibrance in Lightroom 4.  I added the white frame in Photoshop, where I also sized it for posting.  

Exif:  Nikon D800E | Nikkor 105mm Macro f2.8 VR | @105mm | 1/1000 sec | f/3.2 | ISO 200 |
