    Foe this week’s challenge, “focus” on the number 3. You can interpret this any way you like. Be as creative or as basic as you want but please try to take it beyond the rule of thirds. As always, new photos only please. Get out there and shoot!

    Some suggestions:

    Three subjects in your photo
    Three views of the same subject
    Three photos that go together
    Three colors
    A 3 shot panorama
    A 3 year old
    3 of a kind

    How To Amp Up The Power Of Your Photos: Think In Threes

    Good Things Come In Threes - has a definite positive connotation.

    Thanks Sharon. It took about 24 tries. I would get them in place and crawl back to take the photo. They are accustomed to looking at the camera so they would turn to look at me. They equate the camera with treats.

    That first one's particularly nice Charlie!

    Cheryl I wouldn't have known that you had to keep posing & prompting your subjects! I thought they saw something interesting outside and hopped up there to see. (Although now that I think about it, a friend who takes photos of her two dogs seems to catch them going different directions more often than not! lol)

    CIRCLE - SQUARE - TRIANGLE
    Went to the exhibition Bauhaus & Netherlands on Saterday.
    The blue, yellow and red colors refer to a typical Dutch Art Nouveau style, named 'Nieuwe Zakelijkheid' with artists like Piet Mondriaan, J.J.P. Oud, Hendrik Berlage, Gerrit Rietveld etc.

    They did look outside at first, but I was too slow on fixing the exposure and trying different angles. Now if I had only waited until the school bus drove by then it would have been much easier.
