Center of Interest

Center of Interest

There isn’t any.  I posted before that I sometimes like to make images that go against the ‘rule’ that a photo should have a strong center of interest.  This rule or guideline is important if you want to quickly capture someone’s attention, but the image can become a ‘one trick pony.’  If the trick is good enough, that may be all you need.  In a scene like this one, I often move in closer to isolate different details as their own image, but an overall scene lets the viewer examine the details and relate them to the image as a whole.  One thing that attracted me was the ‘sky’ above the roof on the right that is formed by a building in back.
