very effective the blue is fabulous, I like the composition its so peaceful. I do wonder what it'd be like if the first dominant pole wasnt there and the poles that appear closer together occupied more of the image...gnangarra

I like this although I think it is maybe a tad too minimalistic. A tighter crop on the poles and maybe a slightly different angle might have worked better (for me anyway). But it's still a very nice arty/peaceful shot.

I think the first pole is entirely necessary for the shot to work - which it certainly does IMHO.

Might be worth dodging the first pole a little to reduce its dominance?

Fantastic stuff,

Jamie.

Really eye catching, think this would look great as a poster. Your eye just gets led off into the distance.

I suppose you could crop some of the sky so the top of the photo is closer to the first pole. This will make the right-hand side more of a square and the left-hand side a rectangle proportionally closer to the 'Golden Section'.

All the Golden Section or Mean is, is a division of a line or the proportions of a rectangle that in ancient times was deemed to be the most aesthetically pleasing. At least that's what I've been lead to believe.

Regards, Alan.
