#218 The Rule of 3 (NOT the Rule of Thirds)
Created by Mepo
Hosted by Lo
      The idea behind the Rule of 3 is that groupings of odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye. While odd numbers can be 1, or 3, or 5, or 7, the number 3 sticks out as one of the best. So for this challenge we will use the number 3.

The rule of 3 can be applied in very subtle ways, such as three lines, three curves, three sections of the composition, three strong colors, etc. It doesn’t have to be the main subject that utilizes this rule, it can be applied to secondary subjects or background materials. Entrants may want to point out, in the Extra Info box, what the rule is based on if the usage is a subtle one.

From the Greeks, who worshipped the amazing properties of triangles, to The Three Stooges, the number three has a special relationship with human perception, art, music, science, religion, and every other field.
