I’ve said that as a general rule I don’t care for rules. The rule of thirds is somewhat force fed to photographers from day one, and it’s not a bad one, but I think it should be viewed as a guideline and not a rule, shoot what looks right. That said, one of the guidelines I see in my head when I shoot certain scenes is more of a billiard table facing me, that way you have your thirds, but also positions within those thirds, and I’ll often try the shot at each of those positions on the table. I did that with this photo. There were five other shots and I happen to like this one the best as it framed the sunflower against the sky with the last light of day leading into dark. The others included a grass field, a mountain, a telephone pole, and part of Willow Lake.
