A very big THANK YOU to Annette (annettep38) for her flowery User Award on my Silly Sunday image
And Ed, I hadn’t heard of the EPZer Ruurd but thanks for mentioning him. I visited his pf and he’s got some super insect images!
Now then, people, I know that there are these photographic “rules”. To me, most of them have merit especially in the right context. But there’s one I recently heard of which I find quite odd (pun fully intended). It’s the rule denouncing even numbers.
So let me get this straight…an utterly breathtaking landscape shot is destined for mediocrity because of that 4th windmill?
B*ll*cks. [oops…even number there ]
No idea where this photographic feng shui came from but I hope it doesn’t result in a lot of perfectly good shots being chucked.
Also, I think these “rules” should be conveyed as ‘guides’. Otherwise people coming into photography might think that the rules are the be all and end all of what makes good photography. The result? Creativity loses its wings. Tragic stuff.
Here are two troublemakers photographed on my driveway a few years ago.
