Take Beautiful Photographs Easily

The rule of thirds makes it easy to place figures and other important objects in a photograph. Mentally divide the frame into thirds vertically and horizontally. Place key elements in the third sections for impact and interest. This will improve your photography enormously and get people to take notice of the way you see the world. This photo uses the third on the left and the third on lower portion of the frame. The fact that there is almost nothing in the rest of the pic adds to the interest.

Thanks Edward

I trained as an architect and was aware of the one third rule vertically, but I never stopped to think of it horizontally.

Amazing - something new for the day, Tick!

With gratitude
