Smoke, Clouds & Sky

When coal smoke & the sky meet it reminds me of what an artist might draw.









Another try at a silhouette

I don't think I ever have figured out this rule of thirds thing. I have had folks try and explain it but when they do my brain stops.

I think I like the silhoutte the best.

Thanks for the kind words Jay.

nr2 & nr3 are great,

like nr2 for it's composition and ... the black smoke, and white steam coming out of the train.

nr3 has 3d feel for me. The smoke coming towards you, great.

the way I interprete that rule of 3 is that you don't place the subject of you picture death in the center but offset it more to one of the corners, about 1/3 from 2 edges.

And you use that rule in many of your shot's, so don't worry about it.

And if you don't use it, rules are meant to be broken.:-)

Again great shots

Roger,

See if this link helps! http://digital-photography-school.co...ule-of-thirds/

As Ronny said, you seem to be using already. To be using it without realizing it means you have a good eye!

Roger, I like the first one because you get an idea how big the land is. A train is a big piece of machinery, but it is dwarfed by some beautiful landscape!
