Frame of Reference..
I had a heated argument with one of my non-photographic friends about this photo.
His point was that there is no point to this composition, nor is there any frame of reference. In effect making it a useless capture. I had another one ask me to think about every photo I take, in regards to what I want to convey with it.
I agree that a composition has to have a selling point to make it effective. But this is wildly relative to every person. Along with being a craft having some fundamental rules, photography is also an art. What attracted me to this composition was the texture. But it can mean nothing but a log of wood to someone else or something entirely different to some other viewer. Not that I claim to be an artist but the best part of any composition, be it music , painting or photography, is the open interpretation by the artist as well as the audience. What do you think?
