the land on the bottom right and the sloping windows make it seem..... odd.
"Unbalanced" is the word I'd use but I'm not sure if that's really a photography word.
I like the composition!
really small photo, really cramped, really bad watermark
Nice pic, it looks like some of the watermils we have around here!!
it's kinda hard to see the pic though, I didn't even notice the water at the bottom till I brought my face up to the screen for a closer look
I'll post a bigger version when I get home. Usually I post a larger size and people complain.
bigger version uploaded.
bigger version = much better, fits on screen perfectly.
Most of the time people only complain when the larger version takes 5 minutes to load and viewers have to scroll horizontally and vertically to see the full image.
Flat light and your framing combined to make it very one dimensional. Try shooting it from just in front of the wheel or along side the building in early morning or late afternoon light.
Thanks. That has been the most helpful post so far. The photo was actually taken at dusk. I wonder if all the snow was acting like a giant reflector, hence the flat lighting?
I'll try your suggestions about the comp.
The flat lighting was because the sun was already down far enough that there was no direct light. Try shooting it again on a sunny day when the sun is low enought to just light the side of the building. Actually, I think the best light would be a slightly foggy morning.
