Copano Bay Sunset

Last week, I wrote about the principle of layering. Another principle for creating strong photographic composition is to use framing. As the name implies, another element in your photograph creates a border to draw your attention to the subject of your photograph. Often frames in photos are not this obvious and complete, but can be as simple as a tree branch in the foreground that partially frames the main subject. 

This was taken from under the north end of of the Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Bridge near Fulton, TX. It was taken with a Nikon Z5 camera using a NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S lens (1/500 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100). It was edited in Adobe Lightroom.
