Breaking Out

By sherlob    
One from yesterday evening at a local lake (that has featured many a time in my portfolio). I have seen this wall numerous times, but I have always felt frustrated when attempting to use it within my compositions - for example here I think it unbalances the image, albeit this is one of my better attempts to use it. For those interested in such things - the wall is part of the few remaining artefacts of a faire that used to have its home on the shores of this lake.

Yesterday was the first time I have been out with the camera since badly breaking my arm in September. I found some elements difficult - for example I still lack the strength to open the levers on my tripod without bringing the tripod leg close to. Similarly, I need to replace the ball head I have been using to a 3 way tilt and pan head as I can't easily grip and turn the controls - neither issue is a major problem as it give me an excuse to ditch the vanguard alta-pro I am currently using (a tripod I have found extremely frustrating to use when in the field). Given the stage I am at with my studies it may be a while before I get out again, but still I enjoyed myself yesterday.

Happy new year to you all.

Ouch. I'm avoiding ice after a nasty fall several years ago, which means that I'm missing out on a lot...

Look like it's seen better days.

As for the balance, I don't think it's so bad. But you could try cropping it. Remove from the left to a point left of the sun and just before that roundish clump of grass.
I'm not sure, but I think it maybe works a bit better?
