    Vine & Steps

    I found this scene at the back of an old piano factory. I like the textures, tones and arrangement of the vine, weathered steps and stucco wall.

    I like it also, very simple composition. You could shoot this subject from many angles.

    Paul - I've been looking at this for a while trying to work out what my thoughts are about including that grill-thing at the right hand side. I'm wondering what your own thoughts were about that as part of the composition? I think there are arguments for inclusion and exclusion.

    I looked at it if it was cropped just to take out that 'thing' and its surround and,also, the bottom cropped to just below the bottom of the support leg on that bench. Not knowing what your intention was, I don't know if that presents a viable alternative. Only you can judge that.

    Very interesting shot. I agree with a bottom crop just to the edge of the wood steps. I find the screen just a little distracting. How about a crop right at the edge of the wood frame to which the screen is attached? it would still include a little of the screen if your intent was to include its texture in the shot, without pullling our eye off the main objects.

    Thanks for your suggestions. It always helps to have "fresh" eyes view a composition to see elements I may have overlooked or accepted.
