Layering in Photographic Composition

This is another photo of the clouds on the same morning as yesterday's photo.  I stepped back behind the the trees that line the beach behind the mouth of the Langosta Estuary, with the estuary providing a reflection of part of the sky.

This photo illustrates the benefits of layering in photographic composition.  There are five layers in this photo --  the foreground trees, the estuary sand, the reflections in the water of the estuary, the beach sand, and the sky.  I find this composition much more interesting than yesterday's photo.  It adds depth and draws the eye into the photo.

We are showing photos of the jungle Khmer temples of Siem Reap, Cambodia, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
