Rationale ~

I wanted to capture the blue face that nature carved into the rock, hiding behind the boulders in the foreground.

The face is an illusion that not all people can see at first.
However, once seen, it becomes the focus.

As the facial features of the rear rock are very close in tone to the boulders in the foreground, I increased the
colour saturation and contrast slightly in Photoshop, to separate them.

If I took this photograph again, I would make the squinting eye of the face my focal point, to draw attention to the face. I would use a shallow depth of
field to bring the face into focus and blur the foreground. I would also possibly meter from the nose of the face, depending on how much detail I lost in the foreground.
