Thank you so much guys, these articles have helped me understand a little of why some of my photos did not work, even though subject and lighting were good. I will be back many times im sure to read the tutorials as i am jsut learning much about photography myself. Thanks again.

Even after having some experience in photograhy it is still pleasant to read these 2 articles about composition. I quite liked the fact that in the first one things went beyond the plain presetation of the thirds rule.
I would also like a lot to read another article/tut or study about the point of view in very famous shots, where all the basic rules are successfully broken.
Anyway, keep on working, you do a fine job!

Yet another wonderful tutorial. I believe this one is better than the first. I think that the elements mentioned here are a lot more important than the rule of thirds. Mind you, a lot of the pictures shown here disregarded the rule of thirds.
But then again, maybe it's only my opinion because I come from a traditional background and take the rule of thirds for granted.

I am very impressed that someone is actually taking the time to make these tutorials, as they are a great help.
It's good to see someone sharing their knowledge.
Well chosen images really help to illustrate the point, and the tutorials are well written.
I'm looking forward to seeing more.

This article was a big help and has reminded me that it is not only the subject that is an important contributant to the whole picture. I'm going to start taking a different point of view when I capture images from now on (o:

I'm enjoying my classes with you guys, you make your point and then illustrate it so that we 'get' it as well. Lessons by example rather than by theory .. such a refreshing change.

Thank you.
