The photo was take on the fisherman's dock. I saw the cat hiding behind the wooden bars and waiting to eat.
I take some photos from different angles and this I prefer most.
An interesting shot - there's quite a lot going on in it, and it makes the viewer have a good old look!
Boštjan's shot has some classic features of good photography:
- Made use of the "golden hour"– this has resulted in good saturated colours. Read about the "golden hour" (it’s tip 2)
- The scene has some diagonal lines (from the shadows)
- The main subject is in good focus, whilst the foreground and background are blurred – this helps the viewer concentrate on the subject.
I would make use of the crop tool here though. There’s quite a lot of dead space at the bottom and to the right of the photo. I’m sure some of it can be cropped out.
I’m also a little unsure as to whether I like the shadow half way across the cat’s face.
All in all though, I like the shot. Thanks Boštjan!
