This is the entry to “CEE’S COMPOSE YOURSELF CHALLENGE: WEEK #2 WHAT ALL GOOD COMPOSED PHOTOS HAVE IN COMMON”.
Personally I consider “the rule of third” as the rule of good composed photos. There should be a main subject in any photo, and the main subject should be around the place of one – third across the entire photo.
Those two photos were taken during last weekend at Minnehaha Fall. The main subject I considered in these two photos is the waterfall itself, so I waited patiently until the moments when there were not many visitors around the fall.
The long exposure time (2 – 3 seconds) was applied in order to achieve the effect of silky smooth of the waterfall.
During post – adjustment using Lightroom, I purposely placed the waterfall onto the place of one – third of the width on the photo. This created a room (two – third) for water flowing away inside the pond. In addition those two – third of the width on the photo can include those “accessories” such as the trees / leaves which are turning colors during fall season.
Thanks for visiting!
Please also share your ideas on the well – composed photos.
