A Photo a Week Challenge: OFF CENTER

A standard recommendation to create interesting photographs is to move the center of attention off center. It’s not just an oxymoron, but good advice. This week’s challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography is to share a photo with OFF CENTER as its focus. As I looked through my files, I was surprised to find so few photos that met her criteria. That’s a good lesson for the future.

This country farmhouse in New York is my first example:

A second offering is a photo of one of my favorites azaleas: ‘Gwenda’. It has the unusual habit of creating an occasional splash of complementary color…on the same plant.

Please visit Nancy at https://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com/2021/02/22/a-photo-a-week-challenge-off-center-2/. She and others will be sharing their compositions with us.
