Sunset Through the Front Door by Bonnie Gamache



Sunset Through the Front Door

Bonnie Gamache

This is a superb image which employs an abstract view of an everyday feature of a home...the front door. Strong upright elements tempered with water droplets enhance this wonderful composition. The use of muted, pastel colors make for a very inviting image. Without looking at the title the viewer is free to interpret the image in many different ways....the twin towers? light beams? This is the mark of a strong abstract image...beauty of color and composition coupled with a lack of clarity of what one is looking at....so that the mind is freed up to imagine. Once the title is read then the appreciation of how the subject was captured adds to the enjoyment in lookling at this image.

Peek-a-Boo by Julie Jacobs



Julie Jacobs

Strong vibrant colors and a whimsical frog make for this image's strong appeal. The composition makes the viewer move their eyes through the image until the frog is noticed and sets the focus. Autumnal colors of the Lilly pads make for a complement to the green patina of the frog. This happy photograph shows nature in a microcosmic manner....focusing on a small detail that could easily be overlooked during a casual walk by a stream.




Little Red Boat House by Carolynn McCann


Little Red Boat House.

Carolynn McCann

This image expertly combines classical compositional tools to make for a very effective result. The "s" curve of the stream leads the viewer's eyes to the little red boathouse. The only strong color in this image, the red of the boathouse grounds the image. The photographer uses a very thin red double mat to emphasize the solo red color in the image. Taking this photo in the winter allow the photographer to be able to have minimal landscape colors, allowing for the boathouse to draw one's eyes so expertly.
