San Fernando Cathedral part 2
 
During the photowalk I assisted in leading on Friday, we spent some time at the San Fernando Cathedral. In my discussion with the group, I talked about the key to a successful landscape composition was to create a “path” for the viewer to lead them through the frame to your subject. I used the palm trees in my discussion as an example. I stressed with the participants making sure you choose the right angle and height to give separation of the elements to give a clear uninterrupted path to follow. Centering the door to the Cathedral while creating a nice “S” curve path with the palms is straight out of the old painters handbook for composition.
