A composition tip that complements the rule of threes or thirds is to “frame” your picture. This can force the viewer’s eye to the dominant part of the image. In these images I tried two approaches – the top picture has a sharp background, to illustrate the dominance of the mountains over this little valley, and in the bottom image I let the frame be the sharpest point, to highlight the autumn leaves of the tree I was using to create the frame. I’m not sure which I like best.
