This photo is an example of compositional strategy because it uses the rule of thirds. Because the horizon line is on the lower third dividing line of the picture. This photo also has very interesting lines in the branches of the tree. The branches and the tree are the subject and they contrast with the background to bring out the subject. The background in this photo is included because it is in focus. This shows the details in the opposite shore and the color gradient in the sunrise. The background is included by having a more open aperture. There is also a flat straight line in the horizon which promotes the feeling of peace and calmness. One thing that I could have done better in this photo is decluttering the foreground, I think that the fence takes away from the subject of the photo. However if this was cropped then I would loose the rule of thirds.
