Centred

This week we focus on images that, with a healthy disregard for the rule of thirds, are intended to be placed in the middle of the frame: to be literally the centre of attention.

This image was taken looking down a corridor in the cellars of a wine-producing chateau in the Bordeaux region:

Flowers are a very obvious ‘centre-friendly’ subject – particularly when photographing buds, before the petals start to compete for space in the frame:

Also, of course, anything circular has an obvious central focus, be it wheels or even fireworks:

And finally this is just one of my most favourite images: it was taken looking directly upwards to the ceiling of the reception area of the Sir Bani Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi. Those lanterns are between six and eight feet high when you see them sideways on from the second floor.

  3. WOW! Your photos on the “centered” theme are absolutely wonderful. Congrats on being chosen for the harmonious color prompt, which was what brought me to your blog and I just had to look at more. So glad I did. You killed this theme as well!!!! Such variety, uniqueness and perfect photography.
