Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus


This week’s photo challenge is Focus. Whilst in Lucerne this past weekend I was trying to think of unique ways to capture the often photographed Chapel Bridge. Emblematic of the city, chances are if you look for pictures of Lucerne you’ll struggle to find much else besides this wonderful structure. Wandering across one of the other bridges spanning the Reuss river, I noticed that its metalwork might provide some good foreground material.

I thought I’d post two shots to demonstrate the power of focus in leading your eye to the desired part of an image. I think I prefer the one with Chapel Bridge in focus, but I’m still undecided. Which is your favourite?

      Thanks David, I do like the metalwork focus – its curving nature is very pleasing to the eye. But it’s hard not to have have the beautiful bridge as the main focus point. Thanks for stopping by.

      Thanks! The title took a while to come up with, but I’m really pleased with it. It sums me up perfectly in 3 words!

      Thanks Connie! That shot is definitely proving to be the most popular. I’m just glad there was a break in the bad weather so I could spend some time really searching for good shots without an umbrella!

      Thanks! Yeah I think that’s true, the city centre is very small and full of history. I guess they don’t have much room to expand!

      It’s my pleasure! And thanks for your opinion, much appreciated. It seems to be about even between the two shots at the moment.
