Here is a photo from yesterday afternoon during my lunch hour:
I think it is one of those things which caught your eye, looked good when you were there, but not so good as a photo. I am going to be harsh and say it is boring. Others will disagree. I may be punished
No you won't be punished.....severely
Thank you for the comment...I can definitely see how it could be boring...just a limb....everything is green (maybe a little too yellow on top of the green)...but you are right...it looked good when I was there...
The texture and details in the branch is good. I do have to agree that overall this is not an interesting photo.
If a closer crop on one of the leafs exposed for texture using the ambient light was taken this capture might have been better.
Maybe something like this:
I think a radical angle crop might work. Angle the stem top left to bottom right.
Here's an angle version:
The last two work much better than the first, with the second being best.
I still think though that the first one would be the best used in publication applications...
I much prefer the crop and the angle.
What if you cropped the bottom off the first one... Kinda like...
Here's something to chew on for shooting photos that may be used in magazines or other printed media...:
