This month’s theme was particularly loose, and gave people lots of opportunities, which we’d intended. March can be a miserable month, and it’s hard to get out at the best of times!
Dave’s picture we think has a nice bit of foreground interest. Foreground interest was all the rage about 20 years ago, when no landscape photo was complete without a duck in the front. These days it’s not stressed so much, but often helps in giving the picture a narrative impulsion. The view here is less than stunning, but the framing makes us look at it.
There’s also some implied romance from the two benches, which never hurt anyone!
We also had quite a few pictures this month that were totally off topic – eclipse shots, snow pictures etc. We’re really happy with this – if you have a photography problem with your camera or pictures let us know and we’ll try to help. That’s why we’re here!
