One of my favourite methods of composition is to use lead in lines - something that starts in the corner of the frame and travels through the picture. I find this really adds something to the picture as the viewer is lead from one area to another creating anticipation about what might be found at the end - well at least thats the idea..

I find it one of the more straight forward methods as after you have found your subject you only need to search for something that will lead the viewer towards it. Well, it sounds simple in conversation but actually producing the goods can take a bit more time and effort. 

For this photo I was luckily enough to stroll into the position necessary, however looking back I wish I had a slightly wider angle - maybe a step or two to the right. That way I could have placed the person on a rule of third intersection. 

This photo is taken below the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur in an area where many shoppers sit down, rest and watch the fountain show. Its a combined 3 exposure HDR.
