    This is Mersea Island looking across Pyefleet from the mainland shore. Taken in January this year.

    Just love this image for its tones and subject matter, but im not keen on the composition, i think this is one that would hep with the application of the 3rds rule....I HATE RULES!

    I suspect that a nice blue sky with fluffy white clouds would work OK. But in B&W the sky to land balance looks wrong.

    Probably crop the sky a bit and either go to a 2 x 1 ratio or also lose a bit from both edges.

    Like Mark, I'm never keen on forcing a scene to conform to fixed rules but working very roughly around having 1/3 sky would probably achieve a better balance.

    Nice shot hec. I agree with what those above me said about the composition. If you were to crop the image I would take some off the left side as it is a bit muddy safari as tones go.
