Default Is this right?

Not sure i've got my head round this, if I understand correctly the focal point shouldn't be within the four points.

The tree tends to stand out for me personally more than the water running down the rock.
How'd I do :?:
Sorry thats a bit big isn't it

I think your tree runs right up the left 1/3 line and to me it is the focal point, especially since it is in focus.

i like it....but the tree is the "focus"(or focal i guess if there isn't a difference) point but if the water was in focus then it would've broke the rule.....(i think?)

They're right. You composed your photo very well, which means, of course, that you failed to meet the challenge. Odd to fail because you've succeeded, isn't it? :shock: What's interesting is that the majority of us failed, and to my mind, this indicates that we all aren't as bad at composition as we might have thought. Hurray for failure!
