Why this shot works...
1 Leading lines
The composition of this scene draws the eye through by framing the line of mushrooms to curve from the bottom-left to the top right corner.
The contrast of the rich greens and the orangey-red leaves works well together and draws the viewer in.
3 Sharp focal point
Making sure one part of the scene is sharp is vital for the effect to work. The mushroom that’s slightly off in the centre is the main focal point.
4 Blurred area
The blurred area is just as important as the sharp point. Find foreground areas to blur as well as background parts.
