On Perspective and Horizon
by Michael Doyle

A good clean background
Focuses the attention
When aptly found
These photos are worthy of retention

Layered photographs have their place
But cleaner is best to embrace
When a beginner wants to be read well
Gradually adding in just the right detail

Fog and smoke do just the trick
When you need something to add a kick
Popping the subject out to be seen
Whether its mountains or a human being

Adding drama by blocking the sun
Completes the picture if not overdone
Building pictures from the background forward
Helps to capture what you're looking toward

Truly to get the most satisfaction
It's best to be rid of distraction
The subject is the best of the story
Best worked out well to the photographer's glory

Changing the perspective is a big deal
It's the best way of changing the details
Try all the angles from high to low
You just never know until you know

It's all in the way of looking
That makes for photographic cooking
The horizon line truly matters
As to if your story sings or shatters
