The Gate

So much for the rule of thirds. I tried several ways to crop this so the gate part wasn't right in the center but it just didn't work any other way.

  2. Well, the missle of the gate isn't exactly in the middle. The overlap helps it not to break too many rules. I actually like it.

  3. Neato! Can't say I've seen a gate held shut in such a way before. Sometimes you just gotta make it work with whatever is readily available.

  5. The 'rule of thirds' is for beginners. The best photographers have instincts which take them well beyond this unfortunate 'rule'. Keep shooting!

  6. It seems Californians and Oregonians put fences together in much the same manner. I have a shot very much like that one.
