diptych # 33 (ku # 1242-43) ~ leaving a shape belonging not to the subject

Seaweed and rock ~ Blue Rocks - Nova Scotia, Canada • click to embiggenJohn Szarkowski wrote, when writing about The Frame as one of the medium's five inherent characteristics:

The edges of the picture were seldom neat. Parts of figures or buildings or features of landscape were truncated, leaving a shape belonging not to the subject but (if the picture was a good one) to the balance, the propriety, of the image.

IMO, not a whole lot more needs to be written / stated about the subject of good "composition".

The Internet is not big enough to list all the things wrong with the pens right now.
