Golden Har­vest

NPhoto - - NPhoto Photographer of the Year Photo 2016 - Ian Snow­don

While the sub­ject of this im­age is clear, and there’s masses of de­tail, it nonethe­less has a strong geo­met­ric feel. Lines in the crops drag your eyes down the hill, the hay bales have def­i­nite cylin­dri­cal shapes (given form and tex­ture by the rak­ing, low, light) plus strong shad­ows, and the bay and patch of open sky above it cre­ate curves that di­rect your eye in­wards. Ev­ery­thing points to­wards the bright­est point, the sun. Great com­po­si­tion.
