    Time to announce the May challenge!

    The theme for this month is The Rule of Thirds! We want to see composition here folks. How can you use the rule of thirds to create a dramatic photo?

    As always the winner of this month's challenge will get User Gallery web space courtesy of Chase.

    The deadline for submissions is May 31st.
    You can email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com.
    We ask each member to keep their photo anonymous (no distinguishing watermarks, and no photos that have been posted previously on the forum), to include their forum username when submitting, and to submit no more then one photo.
    Please ensure that the submitted photo is in the form of a jpeg image and no larger than 70k. Images that are way over size wise, will not be accepted.

    Good luck to everyone and have fun!

    And just incase anyone missed it MarkC had some great examples of the rule of thirds in this thread http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5823. Thanks Mark!

    Ahh yes, I remember now. I now recall this thread about rule of thirds when Moni posted a picture of an old man selling toys.

    Thanks mark!

    I guess I personally would say no. There are some minor parts of the image at a couple of hotspots, but nothing I would call a main element. The brightest spot in the image, the headlight, is only a little left of dead center.

    We're not overly critical of the submissions. This challenge was chosen in order to get some people out there practicing some more technical compositions. If you've attempted it and feel it's worth submitting then by all means submit it. We wont' normally turn photos away.
