It is certainly a "busy" composition but I cannot see how it can be improved. I might have given the sky a bit more "oomph" nevertheless it is a fine lowlight capture.

I think the composition is OK Ann. I feel a simple shadow/highlights adj would improve the rather flat look though.Smile

I would probably have cropped the rails Ann, I do like panoramas when the fg light is so dim. There's nothing wrong with your image just a little quiet.

I wondered if making this a square crop would work, removing some of the RH side of your image, which would place the building away from the centre but to be honest, I do quite like the look of "empty" on the far side of this, so probably would stick with what you have!! (Here speaks that well known landscape authority!Tongue) Like the inclusion of the rail which is interesting and really does lead into the image.

I must say I am rather impressive with the composition, certainly nit an image which I could instantly tear to shreds. Although I do feel that it is a little dowdy or flat. With a few tweaks of the hue/saturation levels and maybe a little dodging down the left to bring out the detail, I think you would be on to a real winner. However after saying all that, it is after all personal choice and subject to your own likes and dislikes. "Not bad from a lady who finds landscapes soooo difficult?"

I was thinking exactly the same as Ann (EAS) here and even covered the screen for comparison, I think a crop would be nice to take off the two posts but keeping the fg. But then again I like it as it is............So why not have two?

I agree with Brian Ann.

It's difficult for lookers on to suggest ways of improving as we don't know what the photographer wanted to achieve. If it was mine I would lose half the foreground to give the building more chance and even crop it to the second pole from the right. I am not suggesting this is what you should do I am merely saying what I think I would do.

An interesting dilemma you've left yourself with. Chopping the foreground removes the only dynamic diagonal and skews the image proportions too much (for me). Chop the right and you lose those clouds. Chop the left and the poles go. I actually like what you have got and maybe a bit of 'punch' is all that is needed. I think you underestimate your landscape abilities.

One look and I thought Dungeness and I have only been there once! so you have captured the element of the landscape there! Brilliant, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I like it! In particulary the twisted rusty metal on the left and the textures of the ground. IB

The crossing lines, poles and the rails do not act as a distraction, It is a good image with lovely light, should be kept as is IMHO.

A great time to take this shot Ann, the light is perfect.

It's lovely Ann, just the way it is!

Ann, you shouldn't worry about composition, this is just fine. The lines and textures work really well. A situation which for some would seem uninteresting has been brought to life by your vision.

Great shot !!!.....good subject matter, with a nice sky.............

With that 10-22 lens you could've knelt down & filled the F/G with that old 'rail-line' & still retained all the sky drama......which would've reduced
the pebbly area between the rails & the middle-ground.....& perhaps added a bit more 'depth' & 'oomph' ???????.........just a thought ......Smile
