Lines Make a Stage.
Two basic lines make an effective stage for fellow hikers. The most dynamic lines are diagonal lines leading from the corner (left photo) and straight lines leading from the center of your composition. Dynamic because these lines actively lead your eyes into and through the image.
On the other hand, vertical and horizontal lines along the edges of a composition make static frames to contain or 'frame' your subject.
Note how the background (Maroon Bells Peaks) is the same in both images. Aspen, Colorado, USA.
