this is amazing
i love the blues as the low lights
in contrast with the yellow wash highlights which compliment on the pumpkin excellently

and i would like to reinforce zacobia's statment about the shingles al pointing down helping to bring attention to the pumpkin

ok so lets say you want to take a picture of something, say a pumpkin.

look at the picture in your camera and divde your screen up like a tic-tac-toe game. there should be 3 colums down and 3 across (hence the rule of 3rds)

when you take a picture, put the subject in one of the 4 places where the columns cross. Why? I learned in a photo class in high school that those 4 spots are most pleasing to the eye, and those are the spots that the eye goes to first when looking at a picture. Therefore you want your main subject on one of those spots.

Thats basically the rule of thirds! Just be careful,there are other elements that play into the picture such as light, contrast, etc. I find that the rule of thirds works best when you have a non moving object or when you take pictures of people sitting still.

hope that helps :iconheheplz:

My country? Oh my goodness thats not easy to desribe.

It feels like we are a bunch a little countries in one....there are so many different regions with different tradtions and accents and such. I live in Minnesota, in the north. I'm not very big fan of the south. The northern states tend to be more educated then the southern ones.

Overall though its pretty exciting if you live in the right places. ^^ If you ever come to visit, don't judge based on one city. I would recommend staying in a big city like NYC and then stay in a small town. Theres a big difference.

How about your country? I've considered studying abroad in New Zealand.
