Sometimes it's easy to become so fixated on our subject that we don't realize that we are letting distracting elements creep into the frame. By omitting the bright, overcast sky above these moss-covered trees, Jay was able to draw our attention right where he wanted it. Here's a few more tips for what NOT to include in your compositions.

Enjoy & Share.

Landscape photography is a workflow that starts when you are planning your trip and ends when you finish processing the image.

+Clint Burkinshaw provides a compelling reason why relying on ‪#‎Photoshop‬ alone is not the best option for Landscape Photographers. Yes....Fieldwork is necessary to create stunning images like these.
