Sometimes I create an image that looks good, but is just missing something. It seems like a nice photograph, yet it wouldn’t necessarily be something I’d frame and hang on the wall. This particular image is a great example. Strong subject… check. Foreground interest… check. Rule of thirds… check. Dramatic sky… check. Yet it still needed something else. Then it came to me.
It’s missing text. I realized that this is the type of image that would make a good mystery book cover as opposed to framed artwork. Adding a title and my name completely changed it.
Now all I need to do is write the story. 🙂
