    Let’s ignore the rule of thirds, the golden ratio and the compositional triangles and put our subjects dead center. Any subject you like, but if it’s a landscape, make sure your main subject or your horizon is at the center. If we’re ignoring the compositional “rules” the subject will need to be something that benefits from this placement. A reflection, something symmetrical, lots of negative space, filling the frame...

    As always new photos only for the challenge please. Get out there and shoot!

    How to Create a Strong Composition by Centering the Subject

    How centered compositions can improve your photography

    Was out this morning in Hanko Finland and came across this. A fellow shooter was out capturing morning light as well.

    Yesterday afternoon the humongous lens I rented came.
    It's the Fuji XF 100-400.
    This morning having my coffee out on the back porch I was playing around with it. Mostly trying to lift it and hold it steady...

    This hummingbird came along and looked different from the Black-chinned that are usually around.
    I've looked online.
    The major possibilities are Rufous or Allen's female.
    Since earlier this summer there had been a Rufous male hanging around for a few days and since Allen's hummingbirds are usually way farther west than Albuquerque, I'm thinking this is a female/immature male Rufous.

    As I finished editing the image I came over here to see what is this week's challenge.
    I laughed when I realized my crop put the hummingbird feeder in the middle.
    So, here it is!
