Theme : A Nice Shade Of Brown
Photo by Denis Sharpington
Nikon D5100, F6.7, 1/20, ISO 800, 28mm, Lens: Nikkor 28mm
Denis has captured this scene beautifully. He’s given us leading lines along with soft filtered light that makes the browns richer, the fence link in more to the emotive qualities of the photo, and the green as a support to the theme.
The dappled leaves along the track alleviates what could have been a bland path of dirt. Denis has angled the camera in a way where he’s leading us into the story and kept the path sitting in a structured yet comfortable way.
Even though this photo is quite busy, we find that this does not detract from the interest we have in the scene. And the darkness at the center of the photo lead us to feel there is something perhaps mysterious at the end of the path.
With all these elements combined Denis has created an interesting, yet simple photo, that captures our imagination beautifully whilst keeping in with the theme of the month.
Well done Denis.
