All these examples show what I mean by poor composition: 1) the black and white photo has the horizon too high and the tops of the trees cropped. 2) The signpost is obscured by an horizon that is too high. 3) There is no real focal point in the backlit tree other than the tree itself which is cropped. 4) The ruined building, which is the focal point of the next picture is obcured by the tree and the sky is too ‘busy’ with the branches and detracts from the main element of the building. 5) The trunks of the trees are obsured by the background and the branches are cropped at the top and right of the picture.
