One of the most elemental concepts of photography is often one of the most overlooked principles in many photographs. And that often misunderstood concept is the planer nature of the photograph.
In photography, you are actually capturing a three dimensional subject and transforming it into a two dimensional plane. And the simple truth is that not all subjects translate well as depth is removed from the formula.
So the savvy photographer seeks elements that will enhance the apparent depth of the finished picture. Proper use of light and shadows is one way, as well as including both foreground elements and distant objects.
Practice "thinking in 2D" and learn to "see" your photos in your minds eye as information that needs tweaking and adjusting. And make those decisions BEFORE you open the shutter.
There isn't a photo editing program in the world that can make up for poor composition!
