Not really a lot to say about this image, it was a pretty much a simple snapshot. I’ve used a couple of rules of composition with it. Repetition of the building in the lower two thirds of the image and (approximately) rules of third for where I placed the horizon line. I did take a horizontal version of the scene, but in my opinion the vertical is a much stronger image. So I guess that’s a good tip for those starting out in photography – take both orientations and see which works best.
Always worth offering both aspect ratios if you are selling stock – it doubles the chance that you will have the right image when the buyer is looking for a particular aspect ratio.
