Adding dimension to a photograph

The images we view on a computer screen or in a book are two-dimensional. The photos are flat and have no depth. I have difficulty at times capturing the scene on a digital camera as I really experienced it. But you can add some depth to an image by incorporating certain elements. Adding people or wildlife gives the shot some depth and a sense of size.  You can also embed leading lines that brings you deeper into the scene. Adding foregrounds and backgrounds produces depth. The following images show what you can do to produce images that jump off the page or computer screen    Click on first image to start slideshow.
