Default broken rules (i hope)

lol
i can't seem to find anything....i'm too distracted with all the other composition rules...
enjoy





the exposure isn't that great.....and i'm a little off wat i was going for (you can see the chains from the swings behind the front one...)

i think the seat of the first swing is in the "thirds" area.....(well on one of the lines....)

it is a park by my house so i can always try this shot again.......

Very interesting photo and I'm not the grader but I think you failed, which makes you a success. The perspective, the framing, the way you lined up the swing chains, the use of light and shadow are all super. Very nice, I like it. :P

The color is wierd and the purple fringing is intense. I really like the angle on the first much better than this.

I see what you were going for, but I think these two examples show that composition isn't everything. I too prefer the first

The exposure for this subject looks as if it's somewhere in between the two you used. I'm still in the learning stages of such things myself, so I wouldn't dare give a suggestion. One thing I would suggest, however, is that when you have such a difficult lighting situation, use bracketing to cover the possibilities. Even then, you might not get everything exposed as you'd like, but if you've used a tripod and haven't moved a thing, you can use layers, pulling the good parts from each exposure and then blending them into one good photo.

As for the rule, I don't think it would count in this picture anyway since it's a different device being used for composition, which in this case, might have been improved had you moved just a bit more to the side, increasing the angle of the path through that row of swings. (Remember, this is opinion, not pure fact.)
