This close-up photo was taken around 4 PM. The main object was a piece of wood craft, which was placed on a wooden hand rail. The rule of thirds is applied to the position of subject matter. The rail is pointed to the greenery and blue sky in the background, which contrast nicely with the fading wood texture in the foreground. The smearing background due to the close-up effect helps the viewer focus on the wood piece.
The original picture (on the left) shows a full color spectrum in the Photoshop histogram. The only enhancement (on the right) I needed to make was the curves adjustments, a very simply S-curve modification, so that the components of the wood craft have better contrast, which make the object really stand out from its background.
