Developing Your Eye II, Day Four: “Natural World”

My submission for the “Natural World” theme is this photograph “Birds in the Mangrove Swamp”. This photograph was taken during our Photographic Society of Penang’s outing to Kuala Sepetang in Perak, another State neighbouring Penang State. Numerous egrets can be found here due to the abundance of food in these mangrove swamps. We are coming to a bend or meander in the river.

Day Four: “Natural World” — Leading Lines

Today, capture the natural world: snap a moment outside, big or small. From a close-up of a leaf in your backyard to a panorama from your morning hike, we invite you to document this wondrous world around us.

Today’s Tip: While shooting outdoors, look for natural lines that lead your eyes to different parts of the frame. Study the bend of a stream, or the curve of a petal. How can you use these lines in your composition?
