Friday’s Pictures is a recurring topic that features excellent photos by several photo artists and it revolves around a theme each week.
This week the theme is Breaking the Rule of Thirds.

It’s a rule that helps you in the composition of your pictures to make them instantly more pleasing to the eye by arranging the elements of the picture along some of the four lines, instead of just centering the subject.
This picture ilustrates this concept very well:

These next photos, although not abandoning altogether the concept of rule of thirds, are great examples of beautiful pictures that somewhat break the rule. Enjoy!
