then u can put the eyes at the level a third from the top. in this case it's too high. a little head space will be goodOriginally posted by David
Good shot!! Like it. Rule of thirds? I think it is important to understand when and why it is used rather than follow it aimlessly as a strict rule. I don't see how you can effectively put the eye in the one third portion of your frame and yet retain the beak and show a good part of the bird's body. Even if that's possible, it's just one composition but following such rules blindly will cause your pictures to be very boring indeed.
