Landscape Photography Show12,374*Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds* Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines. Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.   Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!   If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon. Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well. *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) *You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don'tLPS Event #44: Horizon - Rule of Thirds2015-06-08 17:00:00588

Landscape Photography Show12,374*Landscape Photography Show #43: The "S" Curve* Curving lines are a fundamental aspect of landscape photography.  They will move the viewer's eye throughout the photograph.  When used in conjunction with light along the curve, the composition is even stronger.

The Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, Florence
A great view of the amazing dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral, designed by Brunelleschi. To the right is the Palazzo Vecchio, the City Hall. This view is taken from the Forte Belvedere, atop the famous Boboli Gardens, on the other side of the Arno River.

Tuscan sunset
As I was driving on the road to Volterra, the stormy and rainy sky suddenly gave way, for a brief moment, to this beautiful sunset.
I found a spot along the road and caught a few images before it disappeared behind the clouds.

Canal Grande traffic at sunset
It's fascinating to watch the come and go of all kinds of boats and vessels along the Canal, especially as the lights come on after sunset.

Michaelangelo's David
This replica sits on the Signoria Square in front of Florence City Hall (Palazzo Vecchio). At the distance is the statue of Neptune, modeled after Cosimo d'e Medici, the great ruler of Florence and a great arts benefactor. Some say Neptune is casting an envious look at David...
You be the judge ;-)!
