3 legs, or a problem with photographic composition
There are two separation problems with this composition. The two surfers on the left overlap each other. Even worse, the figure who is the second from the right appears to have three legs, as a second person is obscured behind her, except for one of her legs.
I am kicking myself with regret over this composition problem because I returned from Ireland a week ago, and as I go through my photos I am so sorry that I did not have the boldness to move slightly a candlestick on a fireplace mantle in a farmhouse that I photographed. After all, I was a guest. The candlestick partially covered up an old family photo, next to medals awarded to the farmer's grandfather in the struggle for Irish independence. I did not maintain separation between the candlestick and the old family photo. Thank you for indulging me in this therapy.
This week we have photos of Lake Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
