Editor’s Choice: Down in the Valley
Many nature photographers are also passionate hikers with many a mountain behind them. The nicest part of a mountain hike is the view down into the valley. That’s why for today’s Editor’s Choice, we’ve chosen the most interesting valley views on the Zonerama web galleries.
The bridge is dominant here, splitting the photo in two. We appreciate how this photo is divided into thirds—the sky, the strip of green, and the river. Author: Nico Koolsbergen
And here we are spoiling Zonerama member Tomki with yet another Editor’s Choice. Why? Because he’s good! Composition prevails in this photo just as in the one above. The human figure in front suffuses the picture with depth and majesty. That figure has no eye-grabbing clothing, and thus doesn’t get in the way. Author: The Wanderings of Tomki
A photo that, for all its weirdness, epitomizes today’s topic. We appreciate rule-of-thirds composition… and so did the photographer. Autor: T.morrissey
A very simple photo with superb composition—the main subject in golden ratio in the foreground, and the background firmly in second place. Author: MACHUPICCHU USA
Not your everyday nature photo—in part because of the bold decision to include motor vehicles. Very good handling of composition, and we also appreciate the timing. Author: Domviller
