Watching Grass Grow.

By cameracat
Hi Folks Smile

I have been absent for a few weeks doing other things as well as some soul searching ( As You Do ) .

Not been slacking in the photo taking department, That would never do...LOL..Grin

But now and then you just have to escape from all the gadget mania, So there I was having a chat with my little gal " Pixel " also known as Princess, We chewed over the whole " Latest Must Have World " that seems to be the way of everything these days..Sad

Well!, Pixel summed it up purrfectly by having a roll in some dust, Then " Watching Grass Grow " ........!!!

I think she has a point.....Wink

Cheers for taking a look..........Vince

I thought it might be nice to see the rest of the cat. In attempting to put the cat and grass in the center, the frame has lost the tail. I am just a completist.

Let me correct you a tad, First it was no attempt, I did in fact place the focal point of the image in the centre, If you take note of the DOF you might appreciate the point of the composition more precisely, That said I appreciate alternate viewpoints, Even if I do not agree with them...Grin

Cheers Chris, For sure this moggie knows a thing or three, Smile

Darn right Adrian, It's no good arguing with one either, See my latest image title Still Watching, Yup! Not a tail in sight.....Grin

Cheers Daisymaye.Grin Yes those eye's, They see straight through to your soul sometimes, Pixel is a very extraordinary little gal for sure. Smile

I really must start taking pics of other subjects soon.

For anyone interested in compositions other than following the rule of thirds option, The above image fits into " The Diagonal Composition Frame " the rule of thirds or as I prefer to call it the guideline of thirds is not the only compositional guide in photography, For those using Lightroom, When you have the crop tool overlay on, Press the letter O key on your keyboard to cycle through the various options, It starts by default on the Rule of thirds, But dependant on your image subject and or intent, You may find one of the other overlays more suitable.

That said I am not inclined to follow rules, As the old saying goes " Rules Are For Fools, But They Are A Guide For The Rest Of Us "
