Applying Rule Of Thirds

1 May

I think the reason to why the 2nd piece works better than the 1st image is due to the rule of thirds, The theory is that if you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines that your photo becomes more balanced and will enable a viewer of the image to interact with it more naturally. Without explaining the rule of thirds theory i asked several people which design they proffered and the majority like the 2nd image better. Personally i also like the 2nd image better although there are still a few things i need to improve on it . Whilst asking for peoples opinions a friend advised me to perhaps add a cloud in front of the mountain or the castle as it looks too flat, i had not picked up on this before but looking back on it i see she has a good point so my next step is to re arrange the clouds. I wanted to include chains as you can see under the castle but i am now having second thought about it as im not sure it looks right. This only means one thing.  . .  more experiments :/




Im not really sure if the rule of thirds applies in this piece but i think it does, i placed the girl on the side to leave plenty of clear space on the side (in this case polka dot space on the side) i did not want the girl in the middle as it did not look right. Also the text that said ‘ well… hello boys’  i though that did not fit in all though it gave off a flirty feel which is what i was aiming to do.
