This image move away from the various "rules of composition" we have discussed, yet uses strong diagonal lines assupporting elements, as well as colour contrast. Yes, I placed the leaves in the foreground; but, somehwere today there is a photographer swearing up and down that those leaves were there just as he found them! by Dale Wilson

This image has been cropped to show how diagonals create the element of movement. Casual observation should provide for your eyes to be drawn to the upper right hand corner of the image due to the lighter colour of the diagonal drawing your eyes there.  Incidentally the image is from my front yard and there was a snowman at the convergence of the lines. by Dale Wilson

Many of the elements of good composition can be found in this image. Can you locate the diagonal lines, the various "C" and "S" curves, and triangle forms in this image? by Dale Wilson

Once a decision has been made to photograph a scene, the beginning photographer would be well served by attempting to cut through the colour and get to the shades of grey between black and white. Then you can really start to see the image reveal itself and provide evidence of the highlights and shadows that will allow you to discern how to best establish a correct exposure for later manipulation in the digital darkroom. by Dale Wilson
