In this episode of the SLR Lounge Forum Constructive Critique, we’ll discuss composition, light, and those small little details that can make or break an image.

One important thing is to always pay attention to intersecting lines.  Avoid cropping elbows off in portraits, for example, and be careful how a subject intersects a horizon line, whether human or otherwise.

Sometimes the best composition isn’t the one that impress you first; you should always move around a little bit and try a few different angles, frame the shot slightly different, move slightly to change background elements, etc.
