In the right hands, lines (horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curving, radiating, and converging) draw viewers?? eyes through the frame in a predictable manner. Color creates a dynamic rhythm or a balance. Depth of field (the area of sharp focus in the image) tells the viewer what is important in the imagewhere it is that the eye should settle.
