    Great feeling of space in this image, created by the central placing of the bar/shed and the vast expanse of sky. Nice one.

    actually its a perfect example of the use of rule of thirds....... The horizon sits 2/3 of the way down the page...

    or maybe your rule of thirds is different from mine

    wasn't trying to be awkward... I just have a thing about people spreading misinformation

    Here's the definition I use...The rule of thirds is one of the most basic composition guidelines in photography. The rule of thirds explains what part of an image the human eye is most strongly drawn towards first. An imaginary tic-tac-toe board is drawn across an image to break it into nine equal squares. The four points where these lines intersect are strongest focal points. The lines themselves are the second strongest focal points. Take a look at these images to see some images that use the rule of thirds.

    You can have your definition, I'll use this one. No misinformation intended.
