Challenge #5 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
One of the easiest ways rookies can improve their photography is to apply the rule of thirds. It takes serious conscious effort to break away from the habit of putting the subject in the middle of the frame and to actually think about the composition of the image. Before you enter, learn all about the rule of thirds then demonstrate your mastery of composition by submitting a textbook example of the rule in action. (Read the Additional rules!)
