    I was out in the yard the other morning taking advantage of our black raspberry bushes that are in full bloom and looking absolutely beautiful. I was trying to get a variety of unique shots, and noticed this parting in the leaves with the flowers behind it…
    1) Do you like this photo composition-wise?
    2) I couldn’t decide when editing if I liked the leaves in the foreground being bright or dark. What do you think?

    Any other comments or thoughts would be appreciated!

    Both pics are the same, just edited differently.

    Camera: Nikon D3100

    Aperture: f/5.6
    Shutterspeed: 1/125
    ISO: 100
    White balance: Auto

    Very creative! I like the effect of peering through the leaves. Makes it vibrant and colorful. I think I like the brighter one. Maybe just add a slight vignette. I also like how the elements surrounding the flowers almost create circles around the flowers.

    Thanks for the critique!
    At this point, I’m still using windows live photo gallery for editing 🙁 and very unfortunately there’s no vignette option in there.

    Hi @bennett-family!
    I like these! I played around with it a little in Lightroom, and added a vignette. What do you think?

    Thanks @hayhand02! I like it; that vignette was done tastefully: it’s not too dark, but I think your eye is drawn to the subject better.

    You’re welcome!! 🙂 I usually dislike a very dark vignette, it doesn’t look natural. Something in the middle works. And it depends on the picture.
