Two equestrian riders, girls on horseback, in low tide reflections

Two equestrian riders, girls on horseback, in quite a foggy day, with low tide reflections at sunset on Morro Strand State Beach 29 Oct. 2008. Michael "Mike" L. Baird Canon SD950 point-and-shoot snapshot. This photo has some "way overdone" Lightroom 2 gradient treatments applied: gold bottom-to -center; blue top-to-center toning.

Digital 100 Examples lesson: "More can be less." Sometimes the better photo is the one with fewer elements and/or a simple background or context into which a focus of interest can be composed. Notice the rule-of-thirds at pay here as well, and use of the leading space to the right to lessen tension for the riders moving in that direction.

This photo displays both perspective and rule of 3.


  1. The traditional marketplace for writers — the book store — I’d rather he get out of the way and make room for people for whom these things actually matter.

  2. Why you guys wasting your time in this really are you serious.

  3. I think it’s a quite adventure.

  4. Twits are the expression and feeling to share they feeling in the communication methodologies.
