Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Week #10 Using 2/3 of your photo frame

I am participating in Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Week 10 – Using 2/3 of your Photo Frame.

I was finally able to get out to take some photos this weekend. The weather here has been unseasonably warm. Temperatures that are usually in the 30’s, have reached the 60’s. I took advantage of this weather anomaly and grabbed my camera.

I found that I take a lot of shots following the Magic of Two-Thirds, even more so than The Rule of Thirds.

I love this door that I spotted on an old mausoleum in a neighborhood cemetery. Prominently positioning the door in the left two-thirds of the shot gives it lots of character.

The shot below also follows the Magic of Two-Thirds. Positioning the bike in the bottom corner with negative space in front of it, creates the illusion that someone will jump on and ride away.

I like this shot below because the small shed is in the bottom two-thirds of the shot. This gives it a unique look and makes the shed look much larger than it really is.

Last but not least, is my pug Princess Leia lounging in front of my Christmas tree. The lights create a nice bokeh and help draw the eye to her lovable mug. She’s just missing her crown.
