Elements of Design
Perspective creates a strong composition in this photo. The picture was taken at eye level with the rake, not above the rake, because that would show flat lines. The leaves create a sense that the rake is in motion because the perspective is on where the rake is placed. The first line of the rake is thicker and then as you look at the very back piece of the rake it is very thin. That perspective makes the picture detailed because there are diagonal lines and the object is captured so that there isn’t just something sitting in the middle of the picture. The depth and lines in the perspective make this composition strong because the angle allows the eye to see all those elements.
