Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds (Rotterdam Hotel New York)

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. Hotel New York was the departure for the Holland America Line.
