Here are two shots I did for the rule of thirds (if you're a contact on flickr, you've already seen them). My subjects aren't precisely where the 1/3 intersections meet but they're close. Very basic shot here. Didn't want to run and get the strobes so I did the classic silhouette effect. Pretty old school. Shot info here Not so basic in terms of getting the shot. Shot details can be found here. There is more room laterally than there should be for a strict following of the rule, but I like the wider crop better. I usually try to keep some continuity to my shots so sorry for the completely unrelated photos.
