Attention Grabber

In the image below,  “Reflections of the Sycamore” I captured the reflection of  several sycamores in the ruffles of a wind-blown lake. But when viewing the image, the refection appears to run off the bottom of the photo. This causes the viewer’s eye to wander out of the image.


Since the image is basically an abstract, in the image below I simply turned the original photo 180 which creates a base that keeps the viewer’s eye engaged with the image longer. When you are creating abstracts, try to keep objects from leaving the bottom of the image. This simple trick will help you create more pleasing abstract photos.
