Foreground Interest

Increase the impact of a beautiful vista by including a contextual element nearer the lens. This foreground interest will offer the viewer more to absorb and yield a sense of scale and depth. To retain sharpness throughout, choose a small f-stop and opt for a wide-angle focal length.

      The rocks in the foreground lead the eye to the bend in the river, and give great depth to the picture!! Very good composition. A very nice picture.
