Some might say that this image has it’s “issues” photographically speaking. The young lady’s face is partially blocked by leaves, there are sticks in the way, it’s not following the rules of thirds, and so forth and so on. But you know what? Art as in beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I really like this image. Why? Because to me while I would’ve loved to have captured both of their faces in clear view from this angle – framed by leaves and such – that didn’t happen. You cannot get animals to pose the way you want to necessarily and sometimes there will be things in the way when you are shooting in nature. You either discard the shot, move around, or work with it as it is.
Now I did get other clear shots of both of them on this fallen tree from a different side but I really like this one because to me it tells a story of sorts; the mysterious wolf lady (in great boots I might add) and her she wolf partially hidden in the wild forest. What do you think?
