Because photography is a two-dimensional medium, we have to choose our composition carefully to conveys the sense of depth that was present in the actual scene.
You can create depth in a photo by including objects in the foreground, middle ground and background. Another useful composition technique is overlapping, where you deliberately partially obscure one object with another. The human eye naturally recognizes these layers and mentally separates them out, creating an image with more depth.
One more effective way of creating depth is the use of lines to draw the eye into the photo. As you can see in the photo above, Ive used the diagonal fence line and the clouds to draw your eye towards the center of the image
