Head here for more Thematic sunrise, sunset
Sometimes, though, I have to wonder if so-called rules like this weren't made to be broken. For example: this shot is dominated by a bunch of electrical infrastructure. I tried to reposition myself, but simply couldn't keep them out of frame.
Indeed, I've seen people deliberately not take pictures like this because there were overhead wires in it.
"It'll ruin the shot," they'd say.
I'm not so sure it would. Because if we all followed the same rules of photography, no one's work would ever stand out.
Your turn: What rules of photography do you like to ignore? Why?
