Shading is vitally important with this image as the darker grasshopper stands out against the lighter soybean plants. The echoing of the vertical lines between the grasshopper and the plant helps to strengthen the impact of the grasshopper. Centering works well in this instance and helps to prevent the busy composition from becoming confused.

You can read the story behind the image on the original submission page.
