Trying to find The Eye
The full-sized version of this image may be found here.
Talking with some friends at work with whom I occaisionally go out shooting, I mentioned how envious I was that each of them appeared to have a good eye for composition, whereas I did not. I am technically very capable with my camera, but I never feel that I am seeing a shot that more artistic photographers see.
My friends came up with a theory. This theory was that I wasn't patient enough when considering a subject, to find that angle or story that existed in the scene. I think they were being kind in disagreeing that I didn't have an essential artistry in my soul, but whatever.
So here was an attempt directly derived from that conversation where I found an interesting sculpture, and instead of taking a complete shot of the whole, tried to find a graceful note in a partial rendering. Comments welcome...
