Interesting idea but too much empty space on the right

author says:

But who says is wrong to have empty space? In my opinion my picture is composed according to the rule of thirds!

Apart of rule of thirds it should be a balance in the image. Here the view is mostly deviated from your subject by the said 'empty space'... You could have this in the so called minimalism when the subject is so small and the empty space does not disturb the subject.

Zizounai says:

I could not really explain why, but I feel attracted by this image, and into it, because of this void space. I want to fill this void and look closer. This might not be academic, only a feeling I get. Sometimes the rules are made to be broken

You are totally right. Rules are there to be broken, to our great satisfaction as long as we are not penalised...

However, if I look at your picture I see two! One on the left with a lot of action... full of story telling. And another one on the right side where nothing happens... No story, nothing... Could this be interesting??? To you? What if you change your point of view and try to see it through some other's eyes... Does it stand up???

In photography when you come to broke the rules the only penalty you get is to be not recognized. It hurts, but you learn to what extent the rules are breakable...

i have chosen to leave empty space in the 2/3 of the photo because i see some interesting elements on the left and let the viewers eye fall on the awkward lady with this special way of dressing. On the left there are the colours , there is life your eye goes there!But on the right! you see a white wall , a little damage, so something is happening. This lady is somewhere maybe alone, doing her daily chores in a place where there is mystery. She has only her coat on the rope, she is lonely! Sorry for the long text but apart from following the "rules", I have seen something there!

If I focused only on the lady I think this photo wouldnt be so strong!

I feel less would have been more with this shot. I am not bothered by the negative space for it defines the grandmother or the other half of the image. However, the plantar the green wooden gate,detract, so when I say less is more had they been out , to me the image would have appeared stronger and less cluttered, negative space nothwithstanding.

Howdie stranger!
