Don’t ask me why but the hinge on this one really grabs me.  It’s the element that completes the picture and without which the image would be lacking. In fact, that’s a design concept worth studying, the idea that a single often small component can make such a difference in a painting or photograph.  That component has been described as the “punctum”, a point or detail that creates a connection with the viewer.

Punctum indeed. The grille covering air vents serves as another point of interest, not to mention the color. Great photographic dissection and commentary, Steve.

Steve Immel said...

Thanks Daryl. This one works because your eye starts on the hinge and is led all over the image before landing back on the hinge. At least that's my experience.

Beautiful composition, Steve.

But for me, while the hinge is interesting, the cherry on top of this one is the dark shape of the hole at the intersection of the curved line of the fender and the straight line dividing the hood from the body of the vehicle.

What could easily have been an "eye trap" is instead an invitation into the secret world beyond the surface.
