These two Day Lilies are framed in this photo in a very basic and composition that still has a strong impact. The composition of the elements placed towards and near a corner each, and in opposite corners. It makes our eyes explore the image travelling diagonal movement; between both elements in opposite corners.
But there is a second aspect in the photograph that I like. I suppose it is because of the petals shape, reminding open arms, what makes it feels to me as the flowers attentively presenting itself, as posing to the photograph.
The diagonal composition of the elements also suggests a dynamic feeling, different from images with elements composed of horizontal or vertical line formation. I feel this dynamic feeling collaborate with the flowers' self display feeling I described above.
