Four Wet Rocks


It is often said that a composition in a photo should contain an odd set of objects, so I ought to have removed one. Somehow I felt that the authorities in Füssen, Germany wouldn't have cared for that. I could of course have used Photoshop to remove one, but I didn't like that. So here it is, for what it is worth.

This is my contribution to:  «The Weekend in B & W»
Have a nice Week-End!

The 4th stone does look a bit like an interloper - I only have vague recollections of visiting Fussen many years ago

En flott B&W komposisjon og
utmerket edit!

Jeg liker at alle fire er der!
Du kunne jo legge den ene i en "skygge" bak en annen ved å velge en annen vinkel?

I'd say it's worth plenty, especially from a man named Rune! Those pillars really do look like runes--and ruins.

I've never heard that rule of odd and even; it's very interesting, but I have no idea yet whether I agree with it. With or without your fourth pillar here, there's something interesting in the scene, to which the darkness and the black and white seem essential, as well as the water and the carved horizontal lines.

Great capture as always, Rune!! A great B&W shot for the day!! I like the darkness and the water as well! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!!

Maybe photoshop the round light out, but not the pillars.

Those stones seem to be awakening ghosts ..A few minutes more and I'm sure they were about to walk !
A picture that makes me dream is a good one, according to my opinion .

Have a nice week-end !

I like it just the way it is.

Great pic. Looks like the top of the stones are rotating.

Jeg likte at det var fire.

Ahh yes, the rule of threes… I think it is a fine photo exactly as it is!

Erin Erkun said...

Rules are meant to be broken. I like it.

Stunning and wonderful photo.

Jackie said...

To me, removing one would have done a disservice to the artists.
You did great capturing it just the way it was intended to be seen.

Rules are meant to be broken :-) Neat details!

Irene said...

Uansett hva som sies om regler ... du er fotografen her og bestemmer reglene, hehe. Stilig bilde, Rune ... den fjerde henger fint med synes nå jeg!

God helg!

Breaking the rules pays off in a beautiful photo such as this one -- barbara

Prairie Jill said...

Gorgeous image! (I think it looks just fine with the 4 rocks.)

Barbara Martin said...

A unique photo with a mysterious angle to it. Nicely done, RuneE.

ladyfi said...

Fabulous shot!

Dragonstar said...

Looks like a group of three, with another on the outskirts. I like the water.

Jarek said...

Superb photo!

munchow said...

Slike regler skal man alltid overse. Fire er et bra tall, i hvert for dette bildet, som jeg virkelig synes er flott. Herlige, mørke toner og en bevegelsesuskarphet som skaper en voldsom dynamikk i bildet. Veldig bra.

Becky Jerdee said...

As you've framed it, the composition is perfect...three together (an odd number), the other set on the other side (space) of the Golden Mean. You're a genius:)

NatureFootstep said...

no problems with the composition. It is solved by the different distances between them. :) But, we have the free will to do as we please. :)

RIZALENIO said...

I love the composition. Happy weekend!

Anne said...

Kjempestilig!! ikke minst arkitektonisk :-) og vann tiltaler jo oss alle :-)

Phoenix C. said...

The composition works beautifully - the irregular spacing gives an interesting rhythm. I'm trying to remember if I was taught that odd number rule in painting - if so I have long forgotten it! :)

Tunes. Runes. standing stones.
