Riga Flowers 2

Composition Adjustment to Arnis Balcus's Poinsetta photoIn case my comments on the previous photo were as clear as mud, here's a quick sketch to show what I mean. The composition is improved by excluding the boring stuff in the background and by including the bits cropped by the original frame. The all-important flower, not the model, is now in the middle line of the picture. And the skull draped in pink balls adds a symbolic comparison between death and life. This composition is beginning to rise to the level of proficiency. I still wouldn't call it "art". It needs a single pink carnation for that! And less makeup.
