cee’s compose yourself challenge: rule of thirds

The Rule of Thirds was one of the first rules I learned a hundred years ago when I started shooting.  (ok more like 30 years ago–some of you probably haven’t even been alive that long…*sigh*) All that to say, I’ve been taking pictures long enough that it is sort of second nature to try and follow the Rule of Thirds.  However, most of the time, when I get my pics uploaded in Lightroom, I’ve missed the mark to a certain degree.  If I can do a small crop to align my subject along one of the Rule of Thirds lines, I generally will do so.   The moon picture was shot at the center of the shot, because I was spot metering, and my camera spot meters from the center. So, when I got the photo loaded into Lightroom, I moved it to one of the Rule of Thirds lines.  That was a big crop, but generally I try to get the image positioned in the right place in-camera so cropping is kept to a minimum.   Thanks Cee for this great challenge!   If you want to join Cee and the rest of us snappy snappers, click on THIS LINK for more info!
