Three Sisters

Three Sisters

 

Besides the happy faces of the girls, I wanted to capture their reflections and the colorful clouds so I decided to go vertical.  Had I created a landscape orientation, the reflections or the clouds would not be included.  These compositional elements give balance to the portrait.  The reflections are leading lines that draw the viewers eye and the colorful clouds in the background give the eyes a place to o after enjoying the the three sisters.
