When we go to create art the best things to try to do is either complient or contradict. when you start with the composition there is the nature of the basics design and layouts, the rule of thirds, golden rule, negative space, leading lines, etc. and you can choose to either compliment these design aesthetics ro contradict them. most things that fall in the middle are not as effective. you need to take a position, a point of view and stand behind it.
