      Jim R – There, you see, I don’t even have the concepts. Sometimes I think I see something – sometimes it doesn’t turn out and I don’t know why.

  1. A little trick to composition — if there is a strong horizontal, make a slightly less strong vertical. Same with strong lines at angles — use angles opposite each other. In the above photo, I would have moved the canoe’s “top” to the right a bit more and the rope down leftish. And never, ever, take a line exactly into a corner. But you knew that.
