Almost there (Gakkenflex)

I’m posting this as a bit of a “what not to do”. I called this one “almost there”, because that’s how I feel about the photo as a whole. I like the depth of the shot, and the blurred edges, highlighted by overhanging trees. Those edges, however, are the problem. Because of the naturally blurred edges on the Gakkenflex, your eyes are naturally drawn to the clear, focussed centre of the photo, and there’s…. nothing there. I feel like this photo is lacking that focus in the centre.

So, when you take photos with the Gakkenflex, keep in mind that it will look best if there is a subject in the centre.  Have a look at my Hikone Castle photo as an example.
