NPhoto - - Over To You -

I was taken aback at the masses of tex­ture in the gar­dens in the Glasshouse Land­scape area at Wis­ley. It is cre­ated not just by the flow­ers, but by the grasses, rushes and sedges that over­lap each other to form some great ab­stracts. Philip rec­om­mended I cap­ture these ab­stracts by fram­ing a few in my Df. I started by in­clud­ing just the dark green leaves in the back­ground and the browner plants that had gone to seed in the fore­ground, but I felt the com­po­si­tion needed some more colour to bring it to life. I put the yel­low plant on the right-hand third of the frame to high­light the edge of the frame. The di­vi­sions be­tween the plants also fall across the thirds of the frame, strength­en­ing the ge­om­e­try of the plants in the im­age.
