Looks like a nude carpenter applying dry wall compound. The mood is real murky. Well staged. -tv

Such a simple thing, the rule of thirds. Go into ps and set your rulers to percent. drop a line down at 33% and 66%, then drop one at 33% and 66% on the horizontal. Now you've got a grid to check with. All the important elements need to fall on the lines and intersections. Easy as pie. :) ~ Lonnit

ups, you got me :o)
thanks all, and Lonnit, I think I need a 'thirds grip' to apply it on my shots, thanks for all your valuable explanation, highly appreciated!
hm, bugger me, I am a bloke and amateur only, how should I ever understand this thirds thingy :)

Qualified on tilt alone! :) Oh, there's a story here! This image certainly makes ones mind wonder! Many stories can come of this excellent image! Rule of thirds strictly adhered to - diagonal line exits the frame directly on the upper thirds line. upper thigh and left foot directly on the left line of thirds. Follow the line of the left leg - if you continue that line, you exit the frame at the bottom of the image, directly on the right line of thirds. Right toes point directly to the lower right intersection of thirds. Look guys, don't frick with me on these lines of thirds - you KNOW they are my obsession! Wonderful image, beautiful colors, adore the grain, fabulous mood! Going to be tough to beat in my book! ~ Lonnit

At least you are not bound anymore. I would not have known what to do with the bottom right corner after I tilted it. Very creative and I now realize I might be able to work with bare space too. I have thrown away good images because I had to rotate them and the crop was to severe because I didn't know what to do with the corners. I too think about what he going to do next. John
