This photo uses a variety of compositional techniques. We can clearly see the rule of thirds, as the bench and the bottom of the wall are both aligned with the bottom third of the photo. It also is a symmetrical photo, save for a few details where that symmetry is broken, such as the light post on the left or the markings on the wall. It also demonstrates overlapping layers, as it has several layers of the bench, the sidewalk, the wall, the mountains, and the sky. It has very distinct components that are simplistic and singular, almost as if each section were its own photo. These individual components are then brought together by overlapping elements, such as the bench breaking the space between the wall and the sidewalk, and the light post connecting the sky, the mountains, and the wall.
