This is a cactus, well, probably a succulent, at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I think this is a good example of how the field of view can change the same shot. While the top is attractive, merely because the plant is, the second shot is much more dramatic and pleasing to the eye. The shot goes from, “And here we see the plant in its habitat” to “I would love that in my home”. Especially if it was in a cool purple frame!
