Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds II

This week’s challenge asks for a photo using the “rule of thirds”.   When first looking at the photo below, the majority of the subject is in the centre so not really following the rule of thirds, but the main subject, being the front rose, is at the intersection of the lower horizontal gridline and the right hand vertical gridline.

Placing objects in a third of a photo works well to balance it and makes it more pleasing to the eye.  For an even more effective photo place the subject at an intersection of the gridlines.

See photos for example.

  2. Nice Photo Karen. ROT is hard for me as I do a lot of close ups – whihc generally take over the whole photo. 🙂 I also like to just “off-centre” mine – not really 1/3 or 1/2 but somewhere in between – it’s what appeals to me, and as that is why I take photos (to appeal to me) the ROT gets chucked out with all the other rules 🙂
