Subject isolation can be an important part of making good images, but the process of doing so can take more than one form. In many cases when subject isolation is discussed the first thing that comes to mind is separating one object from many. In this case the subject matter is a group of sandpipers, rather than an individual bird. Creating an image like this one tells the greater story of the group of sandpipers, which live and function together as a group more than an individuals. This demonstrates a form of subject isolation, but not in a traditional way. This type image making can apply to many subjects, like birds, flowers, and people; it just depends on the circumstances behind the image.
