I’m not particularly good at shooting landscapes.  I tend to lean heavily towards too much sky when framing landscapes so they always feel a bit… top heavy, I suppose.

This shot of San Francisco from Mission Dolores Park, taken in June 2014, is a good example of my “top heavy” approach; however, I did manage to crop some of the sky out to bring some more balance to the composition.


This post is part of Blogging U’s Photo 101 Class, where I’ll be posting a photo each weekday with an interpretation of the given theme.

  1. This shot seems to fall nicely into thirds: sky over city over parkscape. Blue over stone-grey over lively green.

    There’s also a clearly defined sense of depth, too, within the image; the sky arcs up almost canopy-like over the distant city, while the greens of the trees in the park invite the viewer into the scene’s foreground. In all, a pretty awesome shot.
