Florida Travel Photography: Spanish Moss Detail

Below is a handheld capture of Spanish moss using the Tamron SP 90mm VC macro lens.  By getting in very tight on the subject, a large visual emphasis is placed on the individual curls of the plant itself.  We as viewers can also see a bit of surface detail on the moss, a characteristic I was previously unfamiliar with.  To balance out the composition of this macro frame, there is an intentional inclusion of negative space.  Negative space equates to a nice out of focus background here.  As always the photographer needs to make educated decisions about what to include and what not to include in the frame.
