Sorry I’m late. Been pretty busy recently.
While wandering around Grand Prismatic, I was continuously looking for dominant subjects to frame, as well as classic tried-and-true landscape compositions.
While the other guys were audibly struggling to figure out what and how to shoot this landscape, I was set up fro probably my eighth photo of the morning. I saw this triangular form near the edge of one of the nearby pools and set up shop. Having the delta-like form leading into the middle of the frame with the pool in the top third.
However, my timing was a little off. There wasn’t quite enough fog to abstract the background as it did in my other photos from Grand Prismatic. This photo has a bit too much background distraction for my liking. On top of that, the texture of the ground in the bottom of the frame is a bit distracting and loud.
This falls into the category of a photo that shouldn’t have even been made. While i did learn something from it, it was unfortunate that I wasted a shutter count on a photo that was lackluster. Alas, time goes on, and we learn from the failed photographs.
