Well, I can give you a good example of poor conformation.

The girls, a mockingbird, and Connor 069 by RBElwell, on Flickr

Leo has a very straight, upright shoulder, and a short forearm. She also has a narrow front and tied in elbows. The end result is very little reach in front, and an overall lack of agility.
