Here's a photo I took at Daytona in 1998 - it appeared on the cover of HummerNews.
The flags are all pointing at the guy's face, and his head is cocked a little so that his sunglasses follow the line of the flags. The camper, railing, and truck on the right are all pointing at "Harley-Davidson" on the guy's shirt. His left hand is curled - pointing at Harley-Davidson on the gas tank.
I did roll the bike out where I wanted it, and posed the guy where I wanted him. I did NOT consciously line all these elements up. But I wonder whether my eyes and my un-conscious brain told me where to put everything. Or maybe it was just dumb luck. Probably the latter.

I took some art appreciation classes once.
Dave, your discussion is using the same words as my instructors was trying to teach us, (horizontality & verticality [X & Y Axis]) and using similar concepts of composition as they were trying to impart (Depth of concept Z axis), and using the speculation of the photographers state of mind you've reached beyond a standard 3 dimensional view of the world an entered the "TWILIGHT ZONE" (where's that music coming from).
