[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image was made with a different thought process. Creating an artistic image out of a simple subject is what I thought. Hence I placed a torn leaf in front of my lens, to create a dreamy out of focus element across the edges. Then through the gap, I composed the frame and placed the subject accordingly.
I also wanted to show the complimentary colors balancing the frame with lines leading to the subject.

Hi Arjun
Beautiful presentation. I like the isolated subject.
The note is more for TrekLens than for TN
