To paraphrase our Secretary of State, it takes a village to capture a good image. So, not having any formal training in photography myself, I humbly submit a question to the collective wisdom of my gentle readers: which of these two compositions better expresses the beauty of the subject?
These pictures are of the same cluster of flowers, but obviously one shows more of the context. My instinct leans toward focusing on the single bloom, but a designer I know believes context is essential. I would greatly appreciate any feedback from folks with more photography experience than I have.
And here are a few other shots from this past gorgeous weekend.
