The Rule of Thirds

The "Rule of Thirds"

One of the most popular 'rules' in photography is the Rule Of Thirds.
It is the basis for well balanced and dynamic compositions.
Have I applied this technique here corectly?

The rule of great shots is certainly present. The presentation is unique, the blue graduated color is superb.! V

I'm not a fan of rules, your pictures are always dynamic and intruiging!

The leaning lamp post of Pizza? V

How unusual to have the lamps directly outside of the windows. Great composition & colours Fong.VV

Not sure about the rule but the color, with it's graduations is fantastic. Looks like a building I shot last September in the Arab district of Singapore. -Jim

Look like you have applied it correctly here Fong, but then rules are made to broken, aren't they? Cool shot by the way. "V"

Jim Coffman02-Mar-2012 13:56

an nguyen02-Mar-2012 13:50
I look at the artistic level and you well achieved that , my opinion .
Mildred Alpern02-Mar-2012 13:47
Yes, if you turn you image upside down or even sideways :-))
Intuitively, the image works with all the blue dramatic space as backdrop for the graceful lampposts and the double windows -- rules be damned.
borisalex02-Mar-2012 13:42
Multiple thirds in your image! But don´t worry, your images are fantastic anyway! v.
Enny02-Mar-2012 13:25
cool shot, if it's correct??,Think so, I love to go out of bounds, so you may turn it down too Fong.
Raymond02-Mar-2012 13:05
Of course the rule if 1/3 is a strong principle in photography, but any rule you chose is fantastic Fong. This surely is a stunning composition.
Mostafa Moftah02-Mar-2012 13:01
Absolutely :) ~V
CM Kwan02-Mar-2012 12:23
No matter what kinds of rules you used, your photos are always outstanding! V
