Ok, I know I've broken at least one of the rules here as my lead-in line leads right out the far side of the shot, and yet I'm quite happy with this. Any thoughts ?

As Andy says rules are meant to be broken and this IMHO works really well, the composition is spot on and the poles lead you nicely into the image, a cracking shot.

Maybe the poles do take you out but I think that pile of dirt takes you right back in to the buildings in the back. Like the foggy b/g...........Sandy

I enjoyed the opportunity of modifying your photo. For better or worse…I don’t know ? We all see things in a different way. That’s the joy of photography. Otherwise it would be a boring hobby.

Why do landscapes have to be ''pretty'' ?
Good to see a ''real'' landscape for a change Barry !!

I have no problem with your composition - the power station stacks do seem to be leaning a bit, but the image is quite interesting. My observation is the colour - it seems rather strange - over warm in the foreground and generally lacking a bit of impact.

Pfui! to 'rules' Smile
The power station is almost disappearing in the mist, yet once the eye meets it, it stops. And mist does strange things to colours, so I've tried a b&w for you.....

Folks, thank you all.
A lot of valid points which I shall bear in mind for future work.

Watcha Barry,
nowt wrong here, they T Poles are held by that misty dark shape that carries us back to the chimneys and buildings, the bright blues hold us there.

this is an interesting shot but i dont think that the sky has enough drama for a landscape and is not gritty enough for industrial impact. some heavy smoke from the stacks would have been really good.

in the absence of either its usually best to opt for the mono and id crop the sky because there is a huge expanse of white negative space which adds nothing to the composition. doing so somehow gives the shot a tighter composition and focuses on the industry within the scape.

compositionally i disagree with your comment about breaking rules because the power lines have a nice diagonal across frame and the natural scan is left to right and back to the left across the horizon, i think it works quite well.

i did a quick mod to see what you think

Rules or not, I like it as it is. You can't make the telephone poles go where they weren't planted, & you really needed the factory in the background to fill out the shot.

I can't help but agree with Focusman's point about wanting the base of the first pole in though. And after you saying you wanted to see a base to my tulips too!! Smile

As a possible variant, I'd like to see it given the world-famous C123 treatment (tm). Go on, you know you want to.
