too obvious I expect, but I haven't checked the group yet... So, I checked, no lines of pencils yet. good. Shot with 135mm f2 and a 36mm extension tube, lit with one light pencil left, 1m @ 1/64th and one right 2m @ 1/64th. cropped square, vignette added, sharpened a bit and I still missed the focus point :( and also, paying some attention to the "skills" thread in the group discussion with lead lines

FOCAL POINTS LINK “Elements with a point of interest, emphasis or difference will capture and hold the viewer’s attention.” This principle suggests that our attention will be drawn toward contrast, toward the element that is unlike the others in some way. Your eye should be drawn to the square. It’s a different shape and color from the other elements. I’ve also given it a drop shadow to further emphasize it.

Gestalt principles are important to understand. They sit at the foundation of everything we do visually as designers. They describe how everyone visually perceives objects. This article is part of a new series about design principles that can serve both as a refresher for seasoned designers and reference for newcomers to the industry. Hopefully, the content covered here isn't too obvious and self-explanatory, but it's always great to have a nice quick refresher every now and again, isn't it?
