To get maximum impact from photo's, you should use the "rule of thirds".
What this means is that if you draw two equally spaced lines horizontally & two vertically, dividing the photo into nine equal parts, where they cross is the point of attraction in a photo/painting, so there are potentially six points in a photo that will give maximum impact.
This was told to me by a very well known photographer.
