Becky Harris added this to Show Off the Shape of Spheres
The first time I drove through central Virginia, I noticed all of these amazing rolls of hay dotting the hills. Up to this point, I'd only seen rectangular bales of hay, and I was entranced. Something about the placement of these spheres in the landscape reminds me of the feeling I had the first time I saw those hay rolls.
Amy Renea added this to How to Take Home Design Photos
Utilize framing. When composing photographs, make sure you use the frames already inherent in your design. In this photograph, the posts perfectly frame the circular sculptures in the lawn. A few steps to the left or right and that framing would evaporate. It allows the photographer to highlight the design of the space, the views it creates and the sculpture itself.
