Weekly Black and White Challenge - Group of Three - ends 8 p.m. Wednesday 28th November

This can be any subject as long as it is a composition of three.

Hope that this makes sense.

The "rules":

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday November 28th.
4. All uploads must be B&W
5. Only one upload per member
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week

NEW MEMBERS please note RULE 2

Beat me to it.

There's this school of thought that says that an image with more than one prime subject will look better if there are three of them; not two or four or a hundred but just three.
Therefore, if you take a shot of Battersea Power Station, you'll need to position yourself so that one of the chimney's is somehow obscured so that you (and your camera) can't see it.
Either that or blow it up.
As you've probably, by now, noticed, I don't take this rather absurd notion all that seriously.
I file it along with the (I think) ludicrous RoT, Golden Ratio, Golden Spiral and all of the other completely nonsensical, so-called "Rules" of composition.

If you take a shot of two or four subjects with the horizon dissecting it exactly in half and with the people in the dead centre, looking out of, instead of into, the shot and you think it's OK, then it most definitely is OK!

Well done Simon.

I really will try to take part next week. Somehow, I just never seem to come across an opportunist shot and setting one up indoors is nigh on impossible.
