A simple and pure photography compositions



Sunrise at tKirchberg plateuax.. For a full size photo please click on the image.



A story behind: As you probably know I am a big fan of simple and pure compositions in photography.

My today´s work is all about lines. Vertical and horizontal lines suggest order and stability; vertical lines convey strength and horizontal lines are lazy and rather relaxing.
A slightly curved line of the part of the opera´s roof adds a natural beauty and will softly guide your eye through the lateral part of the image rather than from one corner or edge to another.
The same is true for diagonal lines, which can also make an image appear more dramatic and can even convey a sense of motion.

Today´s architecture is extremely modern, almost entirely made of black, white or grey blocks, thus very inhuman and industrialist.
To bring some life to the image I decided to add green trees that look almost the same: symmetrical, almost identical and in that sense they do nor disturb much the geometry of the image.

Balancing your image is an another difficult task. My image is composed of five different geometrical pieces. Bear in mind that black parts "weight" more than whites ones so you must balance them carefully separating (and not putting together) dark and bright parts of the composition.
Balance is almost obligatory in most of the some photos, but if you want to make your images a little more interesting, you can unbalance a composition to attract the viewers attention (my four green trees are unbalanced).
