Rule of Thirds?

Newer Older

View on Black

Taken a few years back. I just stumbled across this beach scene as I was going through my archives. I thought it deserves to be posted.
I never ever even think about rules when I compose a picture. Much has been said about the rule of thirds. Looking at my gallery I find that many of my shots don't really follow this principle. Having said that, I just wanted to say use this rule as a guide and let your instinct decide what appeals to you.

Tell us what you think about the "rule" of thirds.

    Splendid! As far as rule of thirds, it works very well here. I think the rule can certainly have slight adjustments and even sometimes bold exceptions. Delina
