“The Rule Of ‘Thirds’” By Anne Staub. Could someone explain to me what I’m missing here? I mean, I understand the rule of thirds, but if this photo were divided in this manner, it’s not even. I dunno. Help me see.

HI Lis. Can you post a link or insert the image so we can see without having to go searching for it.

You can find out how to did that here

Hi again Lis :)

I do not believe that the image your refer to is minimalist at all, and would not have allowed it in myself. I will wait for other hosts to give their opinion before a decision to remove can be made.

Lis – I agree with you and Mark “rule of thirds” is not minimalist. We have a group of moderators, each with their own opinion. We have the group guidelines/definitions to help and keep the decisions consistent but sometimes moderators opinions will differ…thats not a problem and thats why we have these forums to discuss why something is or isnt minimalist.

IMHO “rule of thirds” is way to busy and has too many elements to be considered minimalist.

Hi Melissa,

Just spotted this thread, and I recall the image you’re talking about which was not minimalist but as regards to the rule of thirds, it was an “abstract” view of it………. :)
