I love the following shot, but cannot understand why it was cropped that way
|Quoting LIPH (Reply 6):|
so basically you're saying that every part of the picture must have a subject ? Without the tower that side of the pic could be considered "empty" ? Probably I must focus on what is considered "empty space" in a pic ? I must admit that the concept of "balance" iself is not that easy to understand...

- Engines : is it necessary that *both* engines are always displayed (especially in front shots) ? If not, at which conditions ?
|Quoting Edoca (Reply 7):|
I'm not a specialist of Golden Ratio / Esthetics theory, but what I know of paintings and photography is that balance in a composition like this is very important:
- the front of the plane, and the tower, are on 2 sides of an imaginary line through the middle.
- The wings seem to be about 2/3rd down on the vertical axis.
- there is a general "line" from top left to bottom right (tail-cockpit-tower-engine)
- all of these elements lead to an aesthetically very pleasing view
|Quoting LIPH (Reply 10):|
but in this way don't you move your point of interest away from the center ? This can lead to a "bad center" rejection...
