Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds (Andalucia 4)

The weekly photo challenge is about ‘the rule of thirds’. When taking photos there are some guidelines to compose the photo. One of them is the rule of thirds based on the ‘golden ratio’. The frame is divided in 9 equal parts created by four lines: two horizontal and two vertical.  The subject that needs the ‘attention’ is placed on one of the four crosses in the frame. Playing with composition is an essential part of photography. It determines how the viewer is ‘told’ to look at the photo. Well. Do as you please I say! Here is a non planned rule of third photo. Most of the time looking through a viewer almost instantly leads to a composition. The object makes its own rules or demands to frame it a certain way. Hope you like the way this one presented itself. Then you know where to put the horizon too, as well as using the lines in the frame. A view from Andalusia or Andalucia in Spanish. A spectacular region of Spain with beautiful picturesque white villages.

About the B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought. All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.
