Hello, Anthony. A good night shot with nice exposure, detail and colour in the sky. A little more colour and detail in the water would have been nice, but we don't always get what we want. With the strong line of the barrage, the repeats and symmetry, I don't feel that the normal rules can apply easily. I do, however, feel that the image is bottom-heavy and that a half-sky and half-water could have worked better and provided more balance. There is a slight tilt to the barrage and the ends are not the same size, so I have gone for pure symmetry in my modification, where I added canvas to the bottom, straightened the barrage line, cropped the left so that it reflected the right, then did a slight levels adjustment.
Pamela.

I agree with Pamela about wanting a more symmetrical composition but I've gone for a different way of achieving it. I used a perspective correction to straighten the barrage (though it still somehow doesn't look straight) and cropped a little for horizontal symmetry but I achieved the half-and-half vertical composition by cropping off the top of the sky and only extending the canvas at the bottom by a small about (20 pixels, I think it was). A long, thin photograph seems appropriate to a long, thin subject. Smile
