    People, if your sense of aesthetic is so impraied that your pictures are actually improved by drawing a tic-tac-toe board on your LCD, you should probably start looking for another hobby! Learning to TRUST your eye and your innate sense of compositional balance is the only way you will make photographs that are both unique and satisfying. If composition was so easy that Put the rock at the third intersection. always produced interesting images, photography would have died off years ago.
