Taken on a walk around the Chatsworth House Estate on Saturday. I preferred a square crop

So perfectly manicured and lovely strips of colour. I would still like this without the tree, although I love the tree. I would like it with the bottom part cropped off too.......Sandy

Central placement of the tree works well in square crop allowing the eye a point of return as it explores the mostly straight lines in the frame. I think the more sinuous wall at bottom is neccesary, both to give relief from and contrast the otherwise straight lines as well as providing a 'base' to the image. I like the way the telephoto lens has let you simplify the comp and compressed perspective, fitting in a lot of walls.

Seeing the thumbnail I wasn't sure about the square crop, but now that I've opened the image and am looking at a larger version I agree with that choice. It may seem only a simple little thing, but the tree's shadow justifies the square crop for me, leading the eye, that was initially drawn to the centre, slightly away from it. And I like the lines in the composition.

Yes, central placement works, for me it's because of the strong baseline which supports the tree rather nicely. But this would need cropping at the sides to create a true square, which would be much tauter, more contained. As it is, it looks a bit flabby. A not-quite square.
I like the diagonal top right, think I'd like to see a bit more of the green above it. So ideally, rather than cropping, I'd like to add a bit more canvas space at the top to complete the square. Now if you were to enable Mods...

Really lovely, with subtleties in the walls.

Personally, I'd crop a little more at the top and lose the diagonal wall - I think the rest's strong enough without. If y ouwanted to keep it square, a little space on each side could go... Though without cutting into the shadow of the tree.

So many different things to do with one frame - let alone the variations you may well have shot...

D'ya know Pete, I like this, but I don't think it needs that heavy diagonal across the top.

As everyone seems to be tearing your work to pieces, I hope you will forgive me for voicing my opinion. I absolutely love the picture, but personally I would have cropped it just above the scolloped wall at the bottom. It seems to clash with the straight diagonals. Sorry. Don

Personally, I love the almost mondrian'esque feel to this and the fight between horizontal and diagonal.

'Tis a winner for me!

Like the strong dividing horizontal walls with the placement of the tree giving excellent balance IMHO
