I am afraid I don't think this angled crop does a great deal for me. It fails to concentrate anywhere leaving the viewers' eyes roaming around in search of something. If the image, as per the title, is meant to be showing the skies, then why not have more sky in your picture with some complementary architecture beneath it. Also to show off skies in Leicester, why not do so in glorious colour? The sky was the last thing I considered as your subject until I read the title.

Sorry to be so negative, but colour for a starter then more sky than buildings seems to be the cure.

Please be sure to load EXIF next time so that we can perhaps help with that too.

Don't mind the low viewpoint and distortion, but you needed more in the foreground, it looks too chopped off. Think I would have stayed with colour, given a little less exposure, then dodged the shadows back.

Hi Carl. This image really doest really have any leading lines, but it does have leaning lines. This type of distortion can work to add a feeling a great size to subjects, but not really here. Theres a lot to look at, and for me, though Im not at all familiar with this location, and dont know if its important, that sign on the left can be removed.


Ive uploaded a mod to show what I mean, with some more contrats.


regards



Willie
