Well worth a read.

I particularly love the photo of the guy out walking his cat.

Spoiler: the Four Rules of Landscape Composition;

1. Diagonal Lines
2. Geometric Shapes
3. The Rule of Thirds
4. Framing Images

I've used all of them at various times - but - when it's a plain - sky plus landscape shot - the Rule of Thirds does work particularly well - which ones are you guys using? - any more that should be on the list? Reply to this
