Composing great images

Composition and light play a big role in how images reveal themselves to people. One of those compositional tools is the use of leading lines. In this photograph I used the lines of the skiff and the granite jetty to lead the eye out to the Motif #1 in Rockport. The Motif #1 is one of the attractions of our Photo Tour. The early morning light gave the high water mark on the jetty a nice contrast with the yellowish morning light on the granite which helps to pull the viewer into the photograph. Leading lines can be a powerful tool in conjunction with a strong foreground to bring your travel photography to another level.
