It's all about composition and taking your/MY time



Just a quick post here.  I rushed my post last night and when I got up this morning to look at it I realized I hated the space ship that I made up.  It wasn't so much the design of it-even though I know it was a dud.  But it was mostly about the composition.  The spaceship was fighting with the place that I wanted the eye to land first-which is the green eye.  Your eye goes back and forth choosing which to focus on.  Plus the vacant stare of the spaceship's big window made your eye go back and stay there. So, I cropped it.  Now you can see what I mean about composition and I like this so much better.  I'm going to leave the other one on so you can compare.  What do you think?

Hey Julie! I love both, but you're right, the cropped version is an improvement, the focus goes much more directly to the eye. What a wonderful idea - I love how you think out of the box! I'm so glad I found you, you're ideas really rock - so much so, I'm giving you an award, check it out here!

Wow, Susan! I am so honored! That is so nice of you and love your comments. I'm very glad I found you also. You know I was in a desert of art production for about 10 years and now I'm back. It feels great and to discover this great world wide artist community-with friends like you!
