Yesterday was fun, so, I rescheduled the planned post and will play with my painter some more today.
4. Nita suggested I use the rule of thirds but put him on the left side, to show more of the wonderful house. This was actually my first crop, which I abandoned because I thought the painter was falling out of the picture. What do you think?
6. But, if the story is the painter, maybe I should go vertical and show all of him, still with the rule of thirds, but putting him on the left this time. I do get more of the house details, which viewers can enjoy until he topples out of the picture . . .
7. Come on, Jack! If the story is the painter, then don't be timid. Show him! Get in closer.
VP suggested that the house is tilting. I made a couple of attempts to straighten the image, but I was looking up when I shot the picture, so one plane or another is always going to be askew. I don't show these here. Sorry, VP.
I'm sticking with yesterday's #3.
