Rainbow Eucalyptus

While doing a workshop with Nancy last week, we stopped for just a moment to admire the stand of Rainbow Eucalyptus on the Hana highway. I looked up and thought how beautiful is this.

When creating this image I put the tree closest to me in the right third of the frame, taking advantage of the vertical lines in two ways.  First, the trees are aligned in the right third of the frame demonstrating the rule of thirds.  Second, the vertical lines of the tress in the negative space represent lines of repetition. The lines serve to draw the viewers eye into the main subject which is the tree in the foreground.

If coming to Maui and want to see the island and learn composition check out Maui Photo Tours.  If interested in traveling with a professional photographer and diver or in Fine Art Photography click on the hyper link.
