Object to finish a Picture

If there is a bland background, break monotony by adding some interesting objects in the foreground. Like a face of a child, pair of chapals, some coconut covering, your leg, add something to the picture extra from outside the frame of the picture, so that the picture becomes more vibrant. Here are some of my pictures.

Totally vibrant chapal breaks the break ground
The lamp shows there is light in the dark

If I would have snapped only the musicians, it would have been a normal picture. Now I saw this board, it gives an feeling of dancing with the music

Law of 3/4th or 1/4th

The Law of 3/4th or 1/4th says that the horizon in the picture being taken should always be in the upper half of the picture taken, or the lower half of the picture taken. It should not  be exactly in the center of the picture. As seen the following pictures taken at different instances, I have tried to follow this rule and hence the picture speaks for itself. If the picture would have been taken with the horizon in the center, then it might not look so lively.

Next time you take a picture of sun-set, note this and your picture would come out totally majestic. Keep snapping.....

One of the pictures, I saw on the papers today. Volcano erupted in Sicily, Italy. This picture would have looked normal if it was taken horizontal. Because it was taken vertically, the total perspective of the picture has changed. :) :)
