Getting the Best Composition - Crop Tool Overlays

There are eight (8) crop overlays to aid in creating the best composition in post-process with notes below. Here are best five author uses. In general - use 'O' and shift 'O', use crop after all PP complete; try options and align as best viewed, don't plan final crop on site, but in post-process.

1. Rule of Thirds: primary point of interest at an intersection - try multiple intersections; remove distractions; place horizon about in upper third - not centered
2. Diagonals: similar to thirds; align subject to diagonal lines
3, Triangle: multi-subject lines and simply align where practical
4. Golden Ratio: more advanced 3rds
5. Golden Spiral: elliptical circle used so sweeping angles end at point
