Sooner or later everyone learns the “rules” and “guidelines” of composition. Leading lines are one of the more popular pointers to good composition. Certainly with this photograph one could talk about leading lines but if you have to think about it your dragonfly would be long gone. These types of guidelines are understood over time and need to become second nature; the time to re-frame is not always there. I think spending time looking at classical art and figuring out the compositional elements is a worthwhile way to help learn photographic composition.
