Why Rules of Third? Cee explains, “For some reason an off-center picture is more pleasing to us. It looks more natural.

Your turn…


 Thank you for visiting. Happy Thursday! 🙂

  1. I listened to a wonderful artist explain the golden mean, or rule of thirds, once to a group. If you look at things in nature, the are almost always created in the golden mean. It has a big impact on art of all kinds.


  2. It’s absolutely majestic,dear Amy!You did catch the glory of this unique moment when the luminous disc sets the skies ablaze!Dazzling fiery and amber tonalitis,exceptionally good use of the rule 🙂 xxx


  3. Such a beautiful shot, Amy. Like orange juice spilt all over the sky. I try to follow the Rule of Thirds whenever possible. It’s not always that easy – some things can get cut out of the photo 🙂
