    Re: First time!

    Rusty wire.

    Why? Why am I looking at it? The photo looks like I am standing there looking down on the wire - so what. When presenting something like this wire you need to find a different way to show it to me than the way I would see it normally everyday if I was walking through the field.

    This is a photo to keep around because one day, and it won't take long, you're going to look back at this photo and say what was I doing? However, don't take it personally, you're learning and we have all at some time saw something like that wire and thought how cool this will look, but didn't know how to present it.

    Road shot

    I suspect you stumbled upon a technique of photography, but had no idea what you were doing with it - leading lines.

    Leading lines are things in a picture that take to to something. In your photo you have great leading lines between the road, lines on the road, and the power lines, but they are leading me to what? The "what" or destination is missing.

    Here is a great write-up with pictures on leading lines done by our own Horoscope Fish. You will need to read it a number of times as it has some pretty heavy reading to get started with, but the pictures will really help you to understand.

    Again, welcome to the forum and I hope you stick with it. GOOD photography is something that has really been lost and unappreciated by your generation.

    Would the woody picture be a semi-decent picture of the rule of thirds kinda??

    Here are the third lines for Woody.

    Cropped putting woody on the thirds and getting rid of all the dead space. Gets rid of the distracting tree in the back and brings you to the point of interest - Woody.

    I think the original Woody shot with all that empty space says, "Buzz went off and left me.", and the slight tilt says Buzz leaving has had a emotional impact on Woody.

    Edited to add: Course, I kind of like the rusty wire shot too. It's a wire that should be taut. Now it has lost the tension, the wrap and is old, weak and limp.

    I was aiming to mention that the @Moab Man info is good info. Listen to all, but still do what you want to do. Shoot them as you see them.

    Re: First time!

    In my opinion, the rusty wire shot would make a really good Black and White art shot...and would make excellent PP practice..

    Have fun, @Chase_ look forward to your seeing your images!

    This is a great idea for teaching people. IS this just a overlay you made that you can bring in when necessary? I am stealing the idea for a couple of people I am working with locally.
