I’m very late posting this, as I couldn’t decide on the images I could use. Most are not true ROT, but I think they work.
In this first image, the main subject/interest of the image is slightly above the right midline (actually a bit too far to the right!)…but the brightness of the object draws you to it:
I’m a great one for minimalistic images, nothing like negative space, and here I’ve placed the main part of the subject on the left lower quadrant according to RoT…but was that necessary?:
This is a bit of a busy image here – are we drawn to the wave because of its positioning in the image, or because it is so bright?…and that in turn has us quickly noticing the silhouetted figures ..but theres a lot of distraction:
Now for an urban scene, and the figure is nicely on the left lower quadrant:
This one is not precisely following the rule, but using a bright colour to draw the eye- Going past a culvert the other day, glancing through the railings, I could see a single child’s shoe below me…..judging by the look of it, it would have been a very recent loss

Beautiful shots. I like the photo from Matera, such a lovely street, with the focus point at the intersection of thirds forcing the eye to travel all over the photo. Also the lovely minimalist photo of the flower; minimal but with the image filling the full picture.
Many thanks, pleased you like these!
I’m with in being a bit flexible with this rule – positioning things off centre and roughly near the grid intersections works pretty well, we don’t need to be precise! I also like negative space and your Chinese lantern tulip is a fantastic example of that. And yes, I do think the positioning of the flower on the rule of thirds helps add extra impact!
Yay! Sometimes I like to position people right at the edge of frame, to jolt the viewer, but I couldn’t find what I was looking for today.
Excelent photos and thirds. I love that sunset.
Nothing like sunset at sea!
Excellent! Love the flower image.
Thanks! That tulip was amazing in the way it decayed
As always Sue, I love your flower on the white background – you do that so beautifully. And the shoe made me think of how annoyed the mom (or dad) would be when they got home and found it missing! 😊. Well done!
Thanks, Tina – pleased I participated!
Great example Sue, the flower and negative space is wonderful 🙂 🙂
Yay, I love negative space!
I love them all but the single tulip is exquisite, Sue.
Ah yes. And old favourite
That’s a nice selection, Sue. The bright shoe certainly draws the eye!
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, and some child’s loss
Side street,Matera!! Perfect.
Pleased you agree, John!
