Botanical Garden- Brooklyn, NY


This photo was taken during early afternoon (approx. 3p.m.) on a Sunday at the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn, New York. I was standing under trees on a trail when I took this photo and did not use the zoom. The photo was taken via Blackberry digital photo because I broke my 'real' digital camera, and I think this photo has decent composure considering the limitations. I think that in terms of emotion, the willow tree's placement in the left half of the photo keeps the serenity of the photo in tact because of the calming water. The ironic part is that this certain lake was in the "Japanese" section of the park, and just to the left of the tree was an obnoxious, bright orange, boat house.

The willow tree is nice n the left side of the page. After more description about what could have been in the photograph, such as the orange boat house, the picture could have been less attractive. The water for sure, is not screaming for me to jump in. However, the environment looks cool and serene.

This is a very serene picture, with a good choice of composition. Leaving out the orange boathouse, and much of the sky, left the color scheme very silmilar all throughout the photo. The tree in the foreground demands attention at first, but after looking at the picture for a few seconds, a balance comes over it that is very peaceful.

I really like this photo! The wind is blowing towards the left so the water has a ripple effect. The limbs on the tree are also flowing ever so slightly which gives the same wind direction. I also like the fact that the tree is off the frame so that your eye follows the water and the leaves.

For a photo taken with a Blackberry, this turned out very nice. I like the movement in the tree and I agree that the entire composition is pretty balanced. This makes me want to visit the botanical gardens.
