focal point

focal point

the Flora gallery certainly grows slowly, so here is one more from a local garden, with snowdrops popping up in a patch of heather (Erica)...not totally sure about this photo...although it confirms that a bit of colour is appearing around the neighbourhood, it seems to lack a distinct focal point

Love how the snow drops just draw you in. This is so nice!

Bravo David, wonderful crispness, not focal point necessary! V

Good example of companion planting. We have a long winter to get through before the magic moment of seeing the snow drops pop through in our gardens.

A wonderful image of these snowdrops between the heather, I like it. v

Snowdrops are so tenacious they simply force their lovely heads up through the heather, no focal pint necessary they just make their own statement, lovely shot David.

Lack of focal point is the difficulty with these types of images, but then it is unnecessary with this rich pattern of white and purple. Well done David. "V"

I see it as abstract .

You are right about the focal point, but this still makes a great pattern!

There's no need for a focal point...better to enjoy an eyeful of lovely snowdrops and heather spread out this way....V

A very pretty combination.

Heather and snowdrops ... I dont think I've ever seen them together before. I didn't think they flowered at the same time either. Great find!!!!

Who needs a focal point on this one. Just so lovely to see the flowers coming up again!
Peter Sussex05-Apr-2012 19:04
Yes, my eyes are attracted definitely to centre:) Great capture. V
Chris Spracklen05-Apr-2012 18:13
Strange, but my eyes are unmistakably drawn to the centre, David.
Beautiful detail, my friend. *V*
