    I had to do this ...

    for those that have asked about good composition ... closely examine the image in this post.

    Look at how and why the elements in this shot make it a great compositional piece.

    Notice how the image is split in half horizontally, yet the key subject is placed in the left bottom third of the frame ... but your eye still moves around the entire frame.

    i think it can be even better if the POV had excluded the facade beyond the outer window on the extreme left and right of the shot. placing my fingers over these - the effect seems to make the image more powerful and limitless. very good image.

    Hmm.

    There are many ways this shot could have been taken ... but the combination's of subjects works.

    This also shows that an image with many elements does not always cause distraction ... but add to the whole (even the hedgerow in the background).
