Studies have proven that our minds like to pair similar objects; thus, if we limit our selection to an odd number, we create visual tension and inherently make our image more dynamic. I found such an opportunity a couple of evenings back with these rocks while teaching a private lesson along the Big Sur coast.

I used a Singh-Ray 3 stop Reverse GND to hold back some exposure on the sky. It's a great filter to use at sunset on scenes with a level horizon line!
