This image uses the emphasis as a principle of design, more specifically due to the use of contrast and depth. The contrast of this photo allows the coffee cup to pop while also drawing emphasis to the forest setting arising out of the cup.

The depth of this image also contributes to emphasis as the focus is sharpe and the small details are made clear.
