Reaching for love.
When composing a picture, it is good to take into consideration how your background can help tell your story. Bokeh, clouds, or shadows can all add to what the picture is saying...so long as it is not distracting. Keeping your depth of field relatively shallow helps to do this effectively.
When looking through your lens, see what you see besides your subject. Does it help or hinder? Cut out the distraction or make it less noisy. Change your aperture or lens...or use your two feet to move and include only what you want in the shot.
