Introducing elements to a photo in progressively receding layers adds depth to a photo that creates interest and draws the viewer into the scene dynamically and naturally. This is an ideal technique for landscapes with a visible horizon.

To apply this rule, frame the scene with interesting nearby objects in the lower portion of the photo and additional elements that are progressively further in the distance as you move up the frame. Tap the screen to move the horizon line.
