I'm trying to get lesson 5 in order. So is this a rule of thirds photo.

Hi Heath, I think regarding ROT on this image: It may technically qualify for ROT, and a pretty neat image, but lets focus on the ROT's. I think the problem is that the plane gets lost in the composition of the rest of the image. The first thing I saw was the building on the left with the tree going through it, then noticed the plane. There just isn't enough focus on the subject itself. If I were you Heath I would keep working on this before turning this one in. Try a ROT's that better isolates and brings focus to the subject.
Heath, sorry I was so quick in PM yesterday, but was in a rush to go out to an invite to the city and had to leave.
My response was similar to Joseph's and would love to see you try for more DOF.
You can choose a different style shot if you wish, even macro. Looking forward to your next try, but please ask more if not sure.

I had some actual time to play with image editing today! :^)

Brilliant edit Stephen.
Thank You Kaye!! :^)
I was actually building off of Joseph's advice, by keeping with the thirds but jetting the plane into unquestionable view...
I also learned a bit about working with blur... 4 separate copies of each propeller, wrapped in a round selection, then 4 separate
applications of the Radial Blur (each with different settings)...wasn't sure how I was going to do this when I first started this
edit.. I learned something today! :^)
