    Congratulations - a great shot and excellent example of Rule of Thirds without being heavy-handed about it. Reminds me a lot of another favorite example of great composition using ROT, Ansel Adams' "Young Oaks in Winter" - http://shop.anseladams.com/v/vspfiles/photos/1701817103-2.jpg

    Nice mood shot, but to mayt trees to isolate a third subject.

    A.N.Other - Read my comment to rd52 below, I don't think rule of thirds just applies to a single element. It is a compositional tool for arranging elements.

    Lovely scene but I'm not really getting 'Rule of Thirds' from it. Very well taken. GL.

    Stunning is all I need to say... This is perfectly done... My no 1.

    rd52 - To me, the left group of trees is on one of the 3rds so is the right group. The water line is on a 3rd and you could say the bright white area is on a 3rd. I don't think there was a requirement to demonstrate the rule of thirds, only to use it in your composition.

In a scene like this, there is no clear dominant subject, the entire image is the subject. Still elements need to be well composed, those elements can be composed using the rule of thirds.

    I really like the photo, great mood, but I don't think that it clearly shows 'thirds'.

    A beautiful scene which meets the thirds rule in a sure but subtle way. High in my favourites.

    Beautifully melancholic mood, intensely present humidity (my hair starts curling!). Composition, focus, contrasts are just perfect in my eyes. Top choice!

    It doesn't scream out "1/3" but I do see it and I really like the overall image. So its in my TT.

    The darker tree captures the eye, and fulfills the rule of thirds theme. The fog adds a beautiful atmosphere.

    Took some time for me to understand, that the horizontal border of the pool followed the rule of thirds.
