Framing the Subject

Framing the focal point is a tried and true compositional technique.  In this view of a church in Apalachicola, the viewer looks past the large tree on the right and the two palm trees on the left.  The third framing element is the cast shadow across the road.  These combine to form a kind of tunnel on the way to the church.

I often use a cast shadow in the foreground to create another element to look over on the way to the subject.
