Photography 101: Offsetting the Horizon

When shooting a landscape photograph, try placing the horizon a third of the way down from the top or a third of the way up from the bottom of the frame instead of placing it in the center of the frame. This will help create depth and enhance details of the items in the sky or the items in the foreground.
