RWPE #44 – Hands

There were a fair amount of submissions for last week’s theme HANDS. Here are the submissions:



Christopher D. Bennett


Angie DeWaard


Julie Johnson


Mike Vest


Shannon Bardole

The Random Generator has been fired up and it has spit out an interesting theme for this week.

Diagonal Rule

This is a somewhat technical theme, so let me quote from Picture-Thoughts:

The Diagonal Rule states that a photograph looks more dynamic if the objects fall or follow a diagonal line. The diagonal line doesn’t have to be an actual line and it doesn’t have to be a straight one. It could be the edges of a river, the top of a forest, or even an imaginary line connecting the different objects in the scene.

There is more of a technical definition that involves math, but for our purposes, I think just have the subject follow a diagonal line is more than enough to think about.

Here are a few examples:



It is a good theme, so I hope that there are plenty of submissions for next week.
