Rule of Thirds Using Nature

Wikipedia defines rule of thirds as:

an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

So as part of the WordPress Daily Challenge of Rule of Thirds here are two photos, nature oriented, for the challenge:

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: One Single Flower

I have to admit that Cee does challenge me in her challenges. (repetitive, yes) ┬áSo this one is about one single flower. If you follow my work you know that I have a LOT of one single flower photos. So I didn’t want to take one of my already done over photos for this challenge but picked out some new ones.

First off the block is one of my favorites. It is a double bloom gerbera daisy that I happened upon at Atwoods at home. It was on a single stem so it should qualify as a single flower, correct? I tried some photo manipulation but it just never looked like I think the flower should so I went with it in natural setting.


Second is one that is a bit on the monochrome side. It is a beautiful rose with colors so soft that you can’t visually always grab the vibrance of them.


Third one is a flower that I have no idea what it is. It was just pretty. The background was desaturated and I opened up the color on the flower.
