Fill it up!

The frequent pairing of floral subjects you see on this sight is to a degree a relic from those old days of film. Back in those dark ages, we felt confined by rectangles. If you didn't want a 3 x 5 print, things quickly got complicated. So the composition mantra of "fill the frame" seemed to dictate an image like this. And we all know about old habits. Now, of course, in a second we can be a lot more creative with the shape of an image. But we still need to fill the frame in most instances.
