One of the first lessons I learned about composition in photography is to "frame it."
Frame the focal point of your picture. One can use natural frames as what I did in this picture. I included a portion of the leaves from a nearby tree to frame the church. I have even seen a photographer who carried around a portable window so that when he takes a picture of something, it appears like the view is taken from a window. How about that? No, I have not yet gone to that extent in my photographic adventures. I prefer the natural way and work with whatever is there in the site. I just usually look around for some vantage point where I can create a natural frame for my photo.
