We are all familiar with basic compositions that usually are found in successful photographs; The landscapes with horizontal horizons, the portraits with proper crop, not cropping people at the knees, "rule of thirds", leveraging perspective etc.. How about post some photos that might not conform to the usual in regards to composition. I'll start... This photo of my son playing on the beach with a shovel. It started out as a portraiture but for some reason I decided to try something different. I am totally not sure why I changed things up at the last moment... perhaps it was my attempt to bring the viewer to the action rather than the typical kid shot. A focus on his arms, hands and how they grip the plastic shovel. Yeh... it isn't normal to crop a subject's body but for some reason this frame stuck out. Not convinced it is a successful photo but I like it for some odd reason.
