A place to think about composition in photography

Sand Fence

Someone placed this shell on one of the sand fence posts on a beach in Norfolk, UK.

The texture of the posts caught my eye and I used a wide aperture to put the background out of focus.

You’ll also note that there is no horizon line in this landscape photograph.

I was told a long time ago that odd numbers, particularly things in threes and fives work well in compositions.  I have no proof of this, it is a purely subjective statement but I’d be intersted to know what you think.  Please do leave a comment if you know.
