1. I know this one breaks the rule of thirds by I also read it's good to break the rules now & then. I felt the view straight ahead and the symmetry of the trees onthe sides were the strong point of this photo. I also used a high contrast B&W conversion to add a bit of zing. Opinions?



2. I've found that some of my white and yellow flowers (the simpler ones) look better in black and white.



3. Another



4. The grid you see on the top area of this one is pigeon netting. Perhaps I should try to remove it in Photoshop but I think it would be a labour intensive task . . I guess I am just being lazy!

All fine shots Suze, rules can be ignored at times because of subject matter.

Careful! The "Rule of Thirds" police might come getchya, suze.

Beautiful, wonderful, favorite is the flower (second) and the first. How did you do the black and white?

Yikes, I guess a disguise is in order then . . perhaps I can fend them off for a time :blah:.

I use a free action set (for Photoshop) downloaded from: http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/...Conversion.htm

It offers quite a few different options, including a high contrast conversion which is my favourite when the image doesn't include a lot of mid-tones.
