Squint your eyes. The resulting overall shapes are indeed thirds... I wish the photo was wider... you'd get more of the effect this would seem to lend itself to.. IMHO.

Wonderful image Matt. Your use of "Rule of Thirds" works quite well here.
Thank Ernst. Sorry to be so late; missed this. Matt

Agree. I will stop cropping and post the natural size for a while just to see what I see. Thanks. Matt

The horizon is where you divide one third--but the color of the sky extends below that, so from a color standpoint the top third is larger and the middle third is smaller. But who said they should be even? I think they are beautifully balanced :).
Thanks Vinny. I always learn from people's replies. Never thought of the color effect explicitly, though. Helps. Matt

In Lightroom, on my MacBook Pro screen, this is evenly divided into thirds, sand to grass, grass to horizon, horizon to top. But my eye doesn't agree. Thoughts? Matt
It is truly divided in thirds and makes a great vertical Gursky-ish image. Chuck gave a good explanation and I won't dispute his expertise - he knows his stuff!! For my less trained eye, it is a little misleading because my eye counts four or even six elements, some relatively equivalent and some not. So it's a stack of unequal parts and I have to use my objective mind to force it back into thirds.
Ah, the mysteries of geometry and the trompe of the l'oeil, or something like that. And the density of color and the dance of the grass. All joining and diverging. A happy waltz. Thanks. Matt
