Review your shot and check for:

  1. Wonky horizons

  2. Empty or fussy foregrounds

  3. Intruders on edges of the frame

  4. Poor composition – no narrative and intention

  5. Too much in the scene – not simplifying the picture

  6. Blown out or dull sky

  7. Image sharpness and depth of field

  8. Clipped shadows or blown highlights - histogram

  9. Overuse or wrong position of graduated neutral density filters

  10. Flat or dull light

You can't fix all these things at home – so get it right in camera!
