Yes, he choose to show the line that crosses something interesting but
have you tried cropping your own work to these lines? I have found in
photos that I took that were hopeless that they could be made very
"artistic" by just cutting to get the interesting points on the lines.
It worked for me. It does not work with 1/3 lines. Also note that 1 to
1.5mm on A4 paper is quite a tight standard and you can see it in
almost any picture that you try it with that is made by a top pro. You
can't do that with golden or with 1/3 lines, try it. Anyway, I still
think it should be included.  We have everything else.
