This week’s challenge is Rule of Thirds.
This is definitely a photo which is off centered.
The subject of interest is in the upper thirds.
While the water is blueish with ripples from the rain drops falling hard on the winter lake, this contrasts greatly with the school of bright colored kois rushing towards a focal point.
Great choice for the challenge, Michael.
Thank you, Jane!
I love koi. I remember having several as a child. An orange one, speckled in black, a white one, a yellow one, and one that I’d say was actually quite golden. Nice picture!
Glad that they bring back pleasant old memories!
Good one, Michael! It’s like someone threw food in to them or something! 🙂
Yes, there was a person there feeding the kois, Linda!
Nice pic Michael, that’s a lot of koi.
Thank you, Laurie!
Great Koi pic! Shooting Koi in a pond can be tricky, you did a great job!
In fact, I also like the ripples on the lake surface too!
Looks almost like an artists rendition of the sun the fish headed in are like rays. Lines pointing into the focal point. Stunning picture!
I am really happy to have captured such a photo, thank you for the words!
Off-centred, but very well composed! Still, though it obeys the rule of thirds, I think it beautifully illustrates a different choice of composition: strength in the upper-right quadrant, created by the flow from the other three quadrants. Very striking colour as well, the koi glow.
The kois looking for food near the surface contrast quite a bit with those deeper down swimming towards the group in the upper quadrant. You have said it well, Icelandpenny!
Nice take on the rule of thirds! beautiful contrast.
Many thanks for the comment, Tiny!
great photo. Love the composition with the rule of thirds.
Great to hear from you, Raewyn!
Thank you, Nancy!
