17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Within this photograph I was attempting to show Yellowstone national park’s blue geezer and the orange-red fire lava-like substance in full detail. I feel that the composition is effective due to the fact I centralised the clearer water to draw the attention to the centre yet I have the blue geezer peeping out of the left to highlight the main stunning areas in the image. Colour also adds vibrancy as the image includes blues, browns and greens from the geezer, the rocks and the trees as well as highlighting the stunning sunset colours in the front of the image that don’t tend to be used in photographs as often as they are less common shades.
