The rule of thirds

Stock Photography By Lars-Olof Nilsson

The rule of thirds says that an image can be intersected by two equally-distanced horizontal lines and two similar vertical lines dividing it into nine equal parts. Important elements in the image can be positioned along these lines or at the intersections between them, which has shown to be pleasing to the eye. A viewer usually first looks at one of these intersections. These images are examples of using the rule of thirds.
