Back within days, Jenny Downing yet again offers up a compositional marvel.


Despite claims of “it’s just gut feeling,” this image is an excellent piece of balanced minimalism. While the limited focus on the delicate textures just inside the forward edge of the purple petal may capture our attention, it is the way the stalk of green in the background frames this subtle subject that makes it so powerful. The petal itself also provides anchoring, holding the weight of that stalk from falling across the image.

Two elements that interact for a beautiful dynamic: colours that complement each other, against a background that lets the subjects shine, centre stage.

Perfectly balanced.
