Alpine Meadows California and The Rule of Thirds

My focus right now is composition. I’m not doing much if any post-processing. I’ve been experimenting with the Rule of Thirds as described in this outstanding article: Two Seconds to Better Photos by Michelle W.

I like how those turned out, but sometimes during my photo shoot walk, I grew frustrated and just put the subject in the middle.  I love the knot hole in this dead tree.

Here’s the same tree from a different angle, obeying the rule of thirds, at least a little more.

I do prefer the composition of the second photo.

Here’s another one where I just wanted the subject in the middle. I call it, Standing Tall.

And last but not least, I loved the majestic mountain and the sky at this moment. I think the rule of thirds wouldn’t work with this, but I don’t know. I like that big peak right where it is.
