CCY: Week #8 Gold Star Award and Features

Welcome to our  Gold Star Award and Features for Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge (CCY).   These bloggers all deserve a second or third look for their entries to  Week #8 Diagonal Lines Challenge.

The week’s CCY theme is Week 9:  Rule of Thirds Introduction.

Awards and Features

Gold Star Award

5-gold-starsThis week’s Gold Star Award is granted to The Beespeak blog.  She is fairly new to me as a blogger and my challenges.  Her diagonal photos are absolutely marvelous for this week.  I look forward to see more of her photos in upcoming challenges.  This photo may not technically be her best one because it is slight burnt out on the upper right corner, but all the repeating diagonal lines and repeating patterns really caught my attention.  This photo and her post is well worth seeing again.

Note: For your weekly assignment I would like to see at least 4-6 photos of photos taken with the Rule of Thirds in mind.   Each week I will select several features from everyone who submits an entry.  And from those posts that I feature, I will grant one blogger the Gold Star Award.
