    Hi prospero. Thanks for your appreciation. Appreciate your suggestion. I'm absolutely aware of the rule of the thirds. But I'm afraid it wouldn't work for me. If I cut out the sky....the idea of solitude in infinity is lost. Rules aren't the only thing to be satisfied. Communication must be taken care of as well. Thanks anyway.

    toriaj,a lot is wrong here...the pictures need sharpening,the sepia needs to be toned down and I need to stop holding the camera askew....
    I realized after a few shots that I was consistently holding the camera a little down on the right. I'll correct that. I love the desert too. Hope to have more.

    here's one more with the askew horizon....what I like about this pic is,it was shot in color...but the light of the sun made it almost monochrome...and hence....to me.....timeless....

    I agree, the most important thing about these rules is that they can be broken . I break the rule of thirds myself quite often. Having more sky in this case does indeed enhance the feeling of solitude.

    Here's a landscape picture I took a couple of months ago in the wetlands close to my town (the horizon is also not at a third from the top, but I just couldn't get myself to crop of the blue sky in the upper part of the picture)

    Nice shot. It even looks good (better to me) if you crop the bottom to put the horizon in the middle.

    Thanks Chili and Iamaelaphant.

    Here is a picture I took yesterday in the wetlands near my hometown. I kneeled down to take a picture of the reed from below. I used the Sigma 10-20 with a circular polarizer.
