If the sun and its reflection appear to be strictly as per the rule of thirds, the credit goes to Photoshop. #126940

Thank you Colette and Isabel for your encouraging comments. Isabel, there is a
general guideline, wrongly called a rule, which says that the maximum visual impact in a picture is created if you place the important subject on one of the four intrsections of the two vertical and two horizontal imaginary lines in your viewfinder. These lines divide the picture area into nine sections. #533204

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
