Composition rules in photography are good to know and if you follow them I would say that you will generally produce an aesthetically good photograph. One of these rules is how to use “Leading Lines”
In the image below I have used the water to lead the eye to the rock formation and right round to the Arch.
Leading lines can be any element in a composition which directs the viewers attention to the subject. You can use a pathway or an object to point to the main subject, both would be considered leading lines.
Above I have used the pathway and the lines of the fence posts to lead the eye to the tree in the top corner, just another example of leading lines and how their use can help make an image work.
