Work the Subject

When confronted with complex, colorful subjects, I recommend trying different compositions.  If the subject is complex, you can potentially find many good pictures from the same subject, or at least some that are much stronger than others.  Here are three variations of the same subject.  By recomposing each time, I found a whole different sensibility in each.  I recommend starting from an overall view of the subject, then moving toward tighter shots and details of it.  This will help guarantee positive results.  The three similar images attached should serve as an illustration of this.  My favorite of the three is image #2, but I had to take all three to even be able to have that choice.
