***This is a complex challenge. Please read challenge comments below and click "show full rules" to understand the mechanism of this challenge.**** The rule of thirds should be a simple guide for the making of good compositions. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds *Please check back for details for uploading an improved version* However reasearch about what people consider good composition does NOT support this rule, Instead the preference seems to be for assymetric, "inward" oriented compostitions: - http://ist-socrates.berkeley.edu/~plab/pdf/PalmerGardner%26Wickens-1.pdf Show us ONE picture in which the subject is inward faced. However, entry in this challenge also obliges to give comments about all other entries in the series. Eventually you may enter an improved version of the first photo. See additional rules. You are encouraged to provide early comments during the submission stage to allow contestants to create an improved photo to submit before voting begins.
