Consider the Rule of Thirds
photo by National Park Service, Alaska RegionFollowing on from balance; keeping the rule of thirds in mind can help to create visually balanced landscape compositions. The rule of thirds is a well-known compositional technique that says to place your main focal point off to the side of an image, rather than dead center. This often results in natural looking, and well-balanced photos.
While the rule of thirds is a good starting point, sometimes this rule should be broken. Often, compositions will call for the focal point to be in the center, or even slightly off center – the key is a visually balanced composition.
