Here’s a simple composition tip – try to avoid merges. Merges are places where lines intersect in such a manner as to distract and run together.
Note the first photo in the post. It shows the grain silo merging with the hill behind it. This causes confusion in the viewer’s eye. It takes the image out of balance and flattens the scene making it look more two-dimensional.
Merges are distracting and can inhibit good composition in a variety of photographic genres. Spend a few seconds before you click the shutter. Check for merges and change your location or angle if need be to avoid them.
