This photo brings back such happy thoughts from our recent vacation. We drove about 3 miles down this dirt road, looking for a geocache, only to find out it was a dead end. When we turned around to drive back out, there were literally thousands of small yellow butterflies along side of the road. They were not there on our drive in. The girls got out and had fun chasing them and trying to catch them (with no luck).
Photo Notes: A subtle vignette goes a long way in adding depth and focus to a photo.
Here is my photo, using the exact same edits, except the one on the right has a vignette added (in Lightroom). The vignette deepens the color tones in the photo and also helps draw your eye to the subject.
Layout Notes: Use clustering wisely on layouts to create a sense of balance.
A layout is a bit like a teeter totter. If you place too much on one side or part of the layout, it can feel a bit out of balance. On this layout, the cluster in the upper right corner nicely balances the title and photo cluster in the lower left corner.
