in this there is the rule of thirds because the window is right in the middle, it has a variety of texture and has organic lines (the curve), horizontal and vertical lines on the window.

Shutter speed

Shutter speed: the amount of time that the shutter is open.

shutter speed controls the movement seen in a photograph.

As the shutter speed changes, so does the amount of light

big hole = more light – fast speed

small hole = less light – slow speed

Must balance aperture and light
