Rule of Thirds
So, this assignment from Scott was quite instructive! I spent time looking at photos that seemed “off” when I made them, but couldn’t quite figure out what I wanted to do to “fix” them. Turns out the Rule of Thirds helps tremendously. I also applied straightening to some, sharpening, contrast, and saturation fixes on some. I could have done this all afternoon, but alas, poor me has to go out to dinner. 😉
Here are the befores and afters.
First up, a shot from Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida:
Another Animal Kingdom shot:
This shot from EPCOT had so many things wrong with it:
But a little straightening, and some cropping, and voila:
And to think I almost deleted that one.
I wasn’t crazy about this next shot when I took it:
And a last one of one of my favorite local views…the change isn’t dramatic, but I do think attending to thirds makes it better:
Thanks Scott, for another lesson! I will go back to more of my “garbage” shots later.
