I sometimes teach composition skills and
always refer to Freeman Patterson's excellent
books on design in photography especially
Photographing the World Around You.
He would say that the more we practice the
using the basic elements of composition - line,
shape, colour,texture, pattern, etc. - the stronger
our photos will be.
Here's a shot about colour and shape from
a shop window. You can sometimes put your
lens right on the glass to prevent reflections.
