Composition - It means everything!

Composition isn't EVERYTHING, but believe me it can sure spoil everything when it is not good.  This has been a really tough battle for me to overcome.  Everything looks good to me when I photograph it.  I find myself thinking it looks great until I sit down to paint it and it hardly ever works.  For me, I can draw anything, but I cannot arrange a pleasing composition or recognize one immediately in a landscape.This is a photo I took this morning and I think I like it.  Time will tell when the painting begins.  By the way, this is one photo out of about 170, give or take!
