    I'm struggling to find the subject. My instinct tells me that perhaps it's the progression of houses, but the clutter makes it difficult to say. A few of the things that clutter and detract from the picture are the cut-off segment of fence in the foreground, cut-off utility pole to the right, a segment of the street to the right, and cut-off cars in the back. All of this makes the photo seem more like a mediocre snapshot than an interesting photograph.

    This photograph's problem, one of composition, is a common one. Learn to understand it, and how to avoid it, and you will start yielding much more interesting pictures.

    This place was a really cool place to take photos, so if i wanted a similar picture (with better composition) , would I photograph a single house with the mine in the background to make it less cluttered? Also what do you mean by cut-off segments? thanks for the help guys!

    Does this help? Thought I'd give it a try...

    All I did was crop out the telephone pole and clone the wires out on the right side of the image to try and make it less distracting.
