  • Depth or shallowness of an image is partly determined by the aperture setting selected. But compositional elements are essential too. Foreground details 'anchor' the shot and help establish depth in landscapes. width:626;;height:480
  • Boats in the immediate foreground anchor the shot. Clumps of vegetation and mid-shot boats establish  middle-ground. Distant mountains, also creating a V shape, complete the sense of depth. width:608;;height:480
  • Lines running from foreground to  background are a fantastic way to create depth. width:607;;height:480
  • Even lines running diagonally through a shot from foreground toward the back create depth. width:640;;height:433
  • Bushes in the immeditate foreground anchor the shot. The flow of the lake water directs the eye back to snow-capped mountains. width:621;;height:480
  • This broken line of rocks both anchors the foreground and leads the eye back to the image's main focal point. width:597;;height:480
  • Curved lines of the road, white traffic line, rocks, beach, wter and trees all lead the eye from front to back. width:631;;height:480
  • Coastlines add great lines of depth in landscapes. width:640;;height:414
  • Another road, green field edges and telephone lines all lead the eye back toward looming Mt. Agung. width:619;;height:480
  • Repetitive curved lines of the trees lead the eye back, create perspective and a tunnel affect. Lines of the road and multiple street light poles add to sense of depth. width:605;;height:480
  • Leading lines work well in cityscapes too. width:609;;height:480
  • Whether straight or curved, lines draw the eye back through the image. width:604;;height:480
  • This clear pool of water in the immediate foreground anchors the shot to create even more depth...out to the edge line of the pool...and distant skyscrapers & horizon beyond. width:605;;height:480
  • Lines, lines, lines! width:438;;height:480
  • ...and more lines. width:368;;height:480
  • Inside buildings, rows of pillars, columns, windows, doorways, lamps can all add tremendous depth to an image. width:313;;height:480
  • Columns, curved lines, repeated patterns, stripes and other architectural details all help create depth. width:320;;height:480
  • Trees in the foreground anchor the shot. Lines, lines and more lines create the remaining spacial depth. width:479;;height:480
  • Door frames within door frames, columns and the hallway floor all lead the eye back to a yellow-clad Buddist statue. width:348;;height:480
  • Shells in foreground, driftwood in midshot, horizon in the background all add spacial depth. Soft lines created by shells, footprints and tide levels all lead the eye through the image. width:352;;height:480
  • Rocks throughout all sections of the image add depth. My solo footprints lead the eye along the beach. width:351;;height:480
  • Driftwood anchor at foreground then clumps of wood and the sea edge lead the eye through. width:349;;height:480
  • Foreground anchor, lines of coconut palms and the water edge all add to the spacial depth. width:345;;height:480
  • Movement created by the patterns and colors in the rocks lead the eye through the photo. width:351;;height:480
