Composition and perception – examples of problems

Here are some examples of poor composition or similar problems. 1) This composition is not bad – a little cropping at the bottom would lower the horizon and improve the picture, but there is no main element of interest. 2) The castle is cropped on the right. 3) The people are looking the wrong way, out of the picture to the right. It would be much better if they were looking in the picture to the castle on the left. 4) The light coming through the trees is in the right position, about one third in from the right, but there is no real strong focal point of interest. 5) The people are too far to the left.
