Lens-Artists #121: Focus on the Subject

For this photo challenge Patti has invited us show an image that uses one or more of the following: leading lines, patterns, color, contrast, selective focus, freezing the action, doorways or arches, or the eyes of humans or animals to draw our attention to the subject. I chose images that use three of these techniques.

Freezing the Action

The image at the top of the page shows the water droplets frozen in a closeup of the Forsyth Park Fountain in Savannah, Georgia. The photos above shows a pit crew at the Daytona 500 frozen in action and college football players frozen at the beginning of a play.

Selective Focus

Zooming in on the butterflies blurs the background of these images.

Using Arches to frame the shot

On the left, the arched doorway at the Tybee Island Lighthouse frames the stairs leading to the top of the lighthouse. On the right, the Forsyth Park Fountain in Savannah is framed by the arch of Live Oak trees.

Many thanks to Tina for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121:Focus on the Subject.

    1. Tina, thank you. The day I was in Forsyth Park was a beautiful fall day and I was lucky to catch the light just right. It’s always fun to see the fountain and all the people enjoying the park.


    1. Judy, thank you! I love the Mexican Sunflowers because so many butterflies and bugs drink the nectar. There were a lot of butterflies that day and I was lucky to capture those two on the same flower. So glad you like it. Happy Monday!
