From the blurred background we see, the photographer used the technique of the depth of field to highlight the object itself. This technique often used in the portrait and the specific object. I also found the photographer apply the rule of thirds in this picture. We see the divisions in this picture from the top to the bottom and the left to the right divided by the third. The division of the length does not have to be accurate but having the sense of showing the position in the picture. We learned that the technique of taking pictures gives a different feeling to the reader.

  1. That photo is very beautiful. The owl stands out in a very harmonious way with the white of the background of the photo when using the focus on it. Very excellent your description, good job!:)

  2. I totally agree with Leslie, that all the objects and colors in this image work harmoniously together to make the owl the main focal point. I really like the color of its beak that brings a slight contrast and a sprinkle of a different color. Also, I believe the framing of the shot makes it more interesting. The owl’s position in the picture (rule of thirds) in addition to the diagonal tree branches with one branch that is almost horizontally straight, is visually pleasing and comfortable to the eye, strengthening the overall composition.
