Photo Composition Rules
The immediate impression from a photograph is judged by the composition balance of an image.
In order to raise the articulacy of digital pictures, apply the photograph composition rules while taking the photos or exhibiting their edges.
Rule of Thirds
The Rule of Thirds is based on the fact that one’s eye is naturally drawn to a point about two-thirds up a page. Cropping a photo so that the main subjects are situated around one of the intersection points rather than in the centre of the image:

Landscapes will be optimally attractive to the eye if you apply the Rule of Thirds when you place your skyline.
If the part of attention is land or water, the skyline will generally be two-thirds up from the bottom. Alternately, if the sky is the area being highlighted, the horizon line may be one-third up from the bottom, leaving the sky to take up the top two-thirds of the picture:

Golden Section Rule
It has been found that certain points in a picture's composition automatically attract the viewer's attention. Similarly, many natural or man-made objects and scenes with certain proportions (whether by chance or by design) automatically please us. Leonardo da Vinci investigated the principle that underlies our notions of beauty and harmony and called it the Golden Section. Long before Leonardo, however, Babylonian, Egyptian, and ancient Greek masters also applied the Golden Section proportion in architecture and art.
To get a clearer sense of these special "Golden" composition points, imagine a picture divided into nine unequal parts with four lines. Each line is drawn so that the width of the resulting small part of the image relates to that of the big part exactly as the width of the whole image relates to the width of the big part. Points where the lines intersect are the "golden" points of the picture:

Diagonal Rule
One side of the picture is divided into two, and then each half is divided into three parts. The adjacent...
