    Hi, Drishya

    I'm a bit of a sucker for shots on the diagonal and don't try it often enough. Typically I think it works best when the subject more fully fills the frame and excludes so much of the background. This perspective is giving me a touch of vertigo, and my neck is craning to level it. I'm curious as to what others think as I suspect this approach will be fairly user-preferred. I would have liked to have seen the same subject shot up tight if you had the lense for it.

    I'll give you 10/10 for that.
    Have to agree with Kevin, almost strained a muscle in my neck trying to level the image.

    Great colors!!!!!

    Drishya, I hate to suggest something impossible in PP, but to my mind, this shot would be much stronger if we could see the young lady's face. Approaching from the opposite side and shooting tighter might have yielded a stronger result. But I do like how her bright clothes and patterned head scarf (veil?) create a very strong focal point.

    The angle doesn't work for me here. To me, angled shots imply heavy action, which doesn't work with this relatively tranquil scene. That said, I prefer the color of the first shot - the second looks washed out. Fortunately, since there's very little skin in the shot, you can get away with lots of saturation. Framing with both walls leading the viewer's eye to the young lady was a good move.

    Hi Drishya,

    Nothing wrong with turning the camera 45 degrees. For me it does not work because I am a bit of a square head.
    The first one is much better.

    Occasionally an angled shot does work for me. But not a whole person in the street.

    I wonder if cropping the 'upright' shot to something like 4 x 5 ratio would work better.
