Art of Clutter




Art of Clutter
Presence of the Eagle made this so called "clutter" look better. I'm sure many here belive there is nothing "clutter" in nature.
Borrowed the titlle from "Art of seeing", "Art of Feeding", etc., hope i have not violated copyrights :)
Executed this as a silhoutte, but post click image didnot look good to me. Opened the darker areas to get this.
thanks for looking, C&C.

best regards,

Branches are definitely not " clutter". Not sure how this term got so prominent in Nature photography, I see a lot of people spending so much time in cloning out branches from images to make the image look so good, but in my opinion they should have spent the same time to adjust their minds to accept part of nature in nature images :). I like the way you have used the branches to compose this image. Should convey a strong message to all those who think of wildlife subjects in studio like frames.

wonderful composition with dark 'n natural lines here, rd. i would try to crop some empty space from right-top to make it look absolutely 'cluttered'!, may be square crop would go nicely. to me, its more natural than otherwise.

art of clutter ....good view on this image is that if the bird was placed with the white area of the frame as bg the cluttered branches will become part of a composition...,making the image more graphical...but as in the image when the branches passes through the flying bird it taking away the focus form the main subject.....composition is about placing various elements is correct proportion and position that case there is nothing called clutter if elements are used carefully....
