Learning the principles of photograph composition appears overwhelming to many photographers, nevertheless it would not must be that means. The statue is obviously the main subject but I’ve left plenty of area crammed solely by sky around it. This focuses our attention on the statue itself whereas giving the main topic ‘space to breath’ so to talk.
