Another great challenge! The the trash bin can really force you to look at your composition and your exposure. The camera may be a “point & shoot,” but if you put the time and thought- the situation allowing – into the photo, it becomes more than just a snap shot.
(Dog and deer repellent) Classic snap shot – gets the job done but leaves quite a bit to be desired.
All the same elements, different angle and more visually appealing composition.
I actually like this shot, but the background, especially the the electric wire running through the bottom of the frame is distracting and detracts from the photo.
Since the drop and the barb are the subject, they should fill the majority of frame. I like the lens flare as well, I think it works for with the drop and sun rays.
