Landscape Photography Show12,746*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 17:00:00586

Birds from recent visit to the cantonment town of Kasauli in the western Himalayas.
This is also where I finally caught up with my dear G+ friend, +Jasbir S. Randhawa . Some of the shots were made while Jasbir was visiting us.
All shots are from the front yard of a quaint house called Win Haven built in the late 19th century I am told.

Singalila Range from Sandakphu
A comment here yesterday alerted me about the downsides of one-dimensional posts on GPlus. I suspect I am not catering to those who want to see non-wildlife images as much as I should.
So, here is one from November last year. This is a stitched panorama.

The Fishmonger and his Wife!
Simple lives and simple needs melting together into smiles that are honest and beautiful.
This is a man I know for a few years now, but this is the first time I came across his wife at the fish market. He asked that I take a shot of his wife, and one of the two of them together. I was with my Olympus #epl3  and took a couple of quick frames. I hope to meet him next week with a print which will bring the smile back.

The Hilsa - a fish that over 300 million (30 crores) people swear by!
Tenualosa ilisha (Hilsa shad) is a species of fish in the herring family which is widespread in the Indian Ocean. Bengali speaking people worldwide are the biggest consumers of Hilsa, which can grow up to 60cm (2 feet) in length and weigh nearly 3 kg. The fish schools in coastal waters and ascends up the rivers for as much as 1,000 km during the South West monsoons. Most are caught for the trade at this time and the insatiable demand is leading to serious over-fishing. Prices are also on the rise and this 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds) specimen will sell for close to Rs 2,000 (USD 31)  in the Kolkata market today.
For those who are unaware of the qualities of the Hilsa, a word of caution - it is a very bony fish and unless you are a well trained hilsa-eater it is safest to try boneless 'Smoked hilsa' :)

Here is another image I shot yesterday. This one I had time to frame as she walked up slowly looking around for anything of value that she could sell.
Note: I posted this elsewhere and many sympathized with her, so called, hard life . I am not here to judge, but personally I find dignity in all work. It is the lazy that I have sympathy for.

The Monsoons are here! :)
It rained constantly for 36 hours in my parts and only stopped at 7am today. Sometimes it drizzled, at other times it poured. End result - the streets got waterlogged and the pumping equipment could not cope with the sheer volume of water.
It is just after 1.30pm here now, and the sky is again beginning to look ominous. That is what the south-west monsoon brings - new life and fresh pain.
Shot a few images earlier today and here is one of them.

The Happy Fishing Family 
...and a make-believe story to go with the image (Long)
I shot this image last winter at Bakkhali, a seaside resort town in West Bengal, India. The shot is of some fisher-folk returning with a catch.
But all images give us more visual signals than just the bare facts. I thought it would be fun to turn detective and describe my reading of the image.
So here goes:
What is apparent to everyone is that this is the aftermath of a catch. The man carries the tools, and the women the vessels. Most Indians will also be able to tell that these people practice Hinduism, evidenced by the 'Bindi' (dot) and the type of bangles that the women wear. 
So far we are on firm ground. What is written next is conjecture.

What is apparent to everyone is that this is the aftermath of a catch. The man carries the tools, and the women the vessels. Most Indians will also be able to tell that these people practice Hinduism, evidenced by the 'Bindi' (dot) and the type of bangles that the women wear. 
So far we are on firm ground. What is written next is conjecture.
The group appears to be a fishing family. The old man, who leads, and his wife flank the outside. The two women carrying the load are daughters-in-law. Possibly, the woman at the back is the elder son's wife, but I can't be sure. In rural India families staying and working together are a common feature. So this family has at least 6 adults, but there may be unmarried sons who are working elsewhere.  
The catch appears to be smaller than expected (witness empty vessels) but there is happiness all around. May well be a case of quality versus quantity - and that could mean tiger prawns. 
The family is reasonably well to do in terms of the local economy, but are not wasteful. All the members wear fairly new, but inexpensive, slippers and the women only wear mandatory jewelry. It is likely that the younger menfolk are doing well, and this activity is all about the family lending a participatory hand. 
The location is near a sea coast as evidenced by the signboard (Lat/Lon: 21°33'40.8"N 88°16'03.8"E; 21.561340, 88.267729), and the relaxing bull is the local shared service provider. These bulls are usually released as a part of a religious ceremony and range freely in the locality. Most families keep cows, but need not keep a bull because this bull is around. I had once met this one on an earlier trip, and he is one nasty customer :)
Hope you enjoyed that tale :D___

The great thing about a camera with huge reach and inconspicuous dimensions is that subjects 100 meters away have no clue what's going on, especially if you shoot from the hip with the articulated screen.

The Nikon Coolpix P610 - a fun camera!
The zooming range of these monster bridge cameras is incredible. This one ranges between 24mm to 1440mm. The Coolpix P900 goes to an astounding 2000mm, but it is a fairly large camera - not as handy as the P610.
The camera should be the go to tool when you want to document a bird from close up and also capture its habitat/environment. That could a great new genre of bird photography! #nikonp610   #coolpix_P610

Starting a new collection with images from the Nikon Coolpix P610. Hopefully, it will be of some reference value to those who are interested in the bridge camera.

Happy Birthday John :)
Drum beats are an integral part of the Durga Puja festival which is held here around October each year.

More with the #NikonP610
My neighbourhood Common Tailorbird this time!
While the camera is no DSLR killer, it may be adequate for the times when carrying the DSLR kit is inconvenient.

More fun with the #NikonP610  , this time on the wide end :)
We are in the season of nor'westers which bring in strong winds and there is a great amount of lightening and thunder activity towards nightfall. This is the sky today.

Indian Roller
On a completely fogged out morning. You can see that the thick forest is barely visible behind the bird.

Today's moon
The great thing about the new #nikonP610  is the reach. And for distant objects that reach means a lot of fun :)
I had a great time shooting the moon today at 1440mm. Have a look.

The Last Dregs
This man, having his morning tea, was shot with my newest toy - a Nikon Coolpix P610. It is a bridge camera with a small sensor but the zoom stretches to 1440mm! I bought it to learn more about compact super zooms and also to record distant birds. 
But there were no birds around this morning - only people.
