Those piers are not yet true cliches. You are missing the kitschy, metaphorical title that tells the viewer what they are seeing.
They need names like "The Long Walk," which would be a picture of a pier with fog at the end, as a metaphor, walking off the pier into fog being like walking into your own death
A pier, sunset, hay bales, and a baby holding a kitten would do nicely. Just be sure to think of a catchy title.
Wait, wait .... add an old man! "Begginings and Endings" is the tilte. It is *almost* a cliche, but it transcends cliche, because you have not one, but *two* beginnings, the kitten and the baby, and the baby is *holding* the kitten, and not one but *two* endings, the old man and the sunset, and that pier is ambigous and metaphorical by being both beginning and end, depending on how you look at it ....
Just don't go to stoners for your philosophy - it will all be cliches! ("Wow, man, did you ever notice when you look at the sky just how small we are, like ....") As opposed to something like Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason". Definitely not a cliche.
Just have fun!
