Exercise 103- Go Nakao

This is a picture of Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. There are several techniques used in this photo.

  1. Symmetry: The sky and the upside down reflected sky is symmetry from the horizon.
  2. Rule of Thirds: The couple in the left side of the photo is looking at the landscape.
  3. Overlapping Layers: The different kinds of clouds each looks like one layer.
  4. Scale: The couple and the little tiny car describe a long distance between them and it encourages viewers imagine its immense scale.

I believe that there must be many requirements to take this beautiful photograph such as weather, water level, wind and so on. Overall, I think this is a great photograph with significant effort.

  1. This picture is beautiful, it is hard to believe that this is real! Nature creates the most heavenly things. There is symmetry present here and the human helps to break it, she becomes the focal point due to her isolation.

  2. I agree with your analysis of compositional techniques. At one-third of the height, the clouds could be seen symmetrical up and down. Also, based on the couple above, the photo shows “Rule of Third” obviously. Given the clear picture of clouds, Depth of Field is expected to be large. Overall, the color of the photo in a bright tone is catching my eyes.

  3. This is an amazing photograph. Love the Symmetry of the sky and its reflection. Its almost if one flipped it upside down you would not notice if one was a reflection or not. The rule of the couple really creates a strong focus.

  4. I also like the composition of the image. The person is relatively small in the picture which allows us to focus on the scenery. At the same time, since the sky and the water are not separated clearly in the picture, the women and her reflection explain the scene.
