Yeah, I'm a stickler for trying to see things (I still miss 'em) like the tree sticking out of a persons head ... the sliver of a chair behind the post. If you can't pull the chair into the scene, put it in a different room. The table & chairs by the window, angle the left one so some more of the chair back shows. It's a thing you just get a feel for as you do it, as to whether it is adding to the scene, or detracting from it. Like I said ... you'll develop your own vibe with staging, lighting, comp and PP.
I try to get a general idea of my lighting first to look for "uh-oh, that'll be a problem" ... then do comp first working around it if necessary, stage second, then light. Or sometimes it is light, then comp, then stage ...
