62nd Show and Tell Contest: Rule of Thirds

Post Tue Oct 09, 2007 7:34 pm


The theme for the 62nd Show and Tell Contest: Rule Of Thirds

The Rule of Thirds is one of the most basic rules of composition and while it doesn’t suit every subject it’s a great place to start with when starting photography and it’s a rule that’s often seen in masterpieces.

What I’d like to see are images, of any subject matter, that demonstrate the rule of thirds.

For those who aren’t familiar with this rule it basically means breaking an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts like this:

Image

The idea is that an image generally (but not always!) looks more interesting with the subject placed more or less on one of the lines like this
Image


or placed more or less on the intersection of two of the lines like this
Image


Anyway, enough of all that, let’s see some images!

Ralph
