Hi folks,

I'm currently looking at some of my old shots through new eyes, namely DxO Optics Pro which I have on trial. Rules are sometimes there to be broken, in this case the rule of thirds. :lol:


The bright background of the forum pages makes the water look rather darker than it does in PhotoShop, which is a shame. Oh well, back to the drawing board. :roll:

Nice one Bob. I like the mirror smooth surface of the water and what's this rule of thirds thing you talk of......? :D

That works really well.... I love symmetry in photos and in this case it helps emphasise the calmness of the scene, as does the centralised horizon...
