Plenty of foot traffic alongside Sydney Harbour…

…and Sydney Harbour Bridge was busy enough

with vehicular traffic.

The Sydney Habour Bridge arch is arguably

the most well-known arch in the world.

 

Very much closer to home, the Prince’s Bridge…

…both contain arches over

Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge

Week 9

Rule of Thirds  Introduction.

I have been painting some verandah posts

during the past couple of week

and today realised that I have missed

a few weeks of this challenge.
Sydney_0065This is one of the early shots taken on our

walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge.

While the Bridge is in the left third and

the tower (or whatever) solely in the right third,

I don’t like this shot from a photographic point of view.

Sydney_0065b

I’m sure experts with Photoshop would pick up the rough editing

I have done…however, I think this version is more pleasing to the eye.

There was lack of balance in the first short even though each third,

except the centre column, contained something.

My eye runs along the concrete (handrail), to the pylon

and then is drawn to the buildings on the other side.

Sydney_0195The left and top third intersect in the hole in the pylon.

While not a true thirds shot I think it works

because it is more balanced.

The left third contains mostly trees and bridge pylons

and half the right third is filled with the modern building

which is also reflecting the left side of the photo.

Again the bridge acts as a leading line (I think) drawing

the viewer’s eye to the other side of the Harbour

and away from the messy bottom third.

sydney_0075Again the right and top third intersect low down

on the major sail of the Opera House,

leaving the wake of the ferries to add

some interest in the middle third.

moon_0004To my eye, even though I have cropped this photo

there is still too much empty space

moon_0004aCropping, only seeing a portion of the moon,

adds more interest although

perhaps not a true thirds photo
