Evening Gift

Evening Gift, originally uploaded by MrsMama.

This beautiful sunset lit up our skies last week. I love the contrast between the vivid colors and the starkness of the silhouetted land. I roughly used the "rule of thirds" when I composed this. Theoretically, one should not place the horizon smack in the middle. Instead, fill the frame with whatever you would like to showcase and place major lines one-third of the way into the frame. Of course, rules can be broken, but I think it works here, don't you? :)

Um, except that's a quarter :)

Hey, I said "roughly"! :P

The blue sky kinda takes up a third.

Now put down your ruler and go do some pushups or something. :)
