Regular readers will know my thoughts on the so-called Rool of Thurds. But the 52 challenge this week calls for Rool of Thurds so I suppose I must comply.
Normally I would position a bird flying like this in the way you see it now. I’d move it down a bit and wouldn’t have as much space to the left hand side for it to fly into. But the Rool of Thurds is a rool I’ve got to stick to this week so that’s how I’ve cropped the photograph. Would you do different and still conform to the Rool of Thurds? Just for info there was open water all around the gull.
The next photograph is slightly better. Taken on the Albert dock in Liverpool from inside a Tapas Bar it’s the ideal way to practice a bit of street photography.
In general it conforms to the rool, especially as far as the silhouette is concerned. The tea and coffee should maybe have been higher or lower but you can’t win them all. Although once again I’m open to suggestions.
