The rule of thirds is where the object of focus takes up one to two thirds of the frame. In this picture the lighthouse is in one third while the ocean and sunset take up the other two thirds.

Here, as in the picture above, the red tulip takes up one third while the white take up the other two thirds.

Leading lines are to help draw or “lead” you into the picture. In this photo the lines from the bridge, boat, coastline, and even the clouds draw you deeper in.

Depth of field is in a sense a 3D touch. In order to have good depth of field you have to have at lest three stages to your picture, the foreground, middleground, and background. In this picture the first hay bale creates the foreground, the other hay bales create the middlegound, and the trees and horizon create the background. All these put together give it that feel of being 3D.
