Is There A Little More Tolerance For 'centre' Now?

Mon Jan 07, 2008 9:26 am

I'm curious, under the broader guidelines. I don't mean composition where there's a very obvious reason for doing it, but rather more subtle placement - for some situations I like the aeroplane just slightly off-centre, such as here:



Is it a little more relaxed now?

probably not for a case like this.

Not for this one - already rejected for different reasons.

What I was getting at is whether this particular rule is a little more relaxed. It's a personal bugbear as I don't really understand the need for geometrically perfect dead-center framing; it's a peculiar thing in aviation photography that doesn't really have an analogue elsewhere, indeed people smarter than me have written reams on the subject of where the human eye likes things in photographs, geometry and paintings, and the general idea is that 'right in the middle' isn't particuarly desireable; however in our hobby it is canon...not sure why, but I don't make the rules.

I was just wondering if there's a little flexibility now that Olympus is under new management.

Cheers
