It's really nice, but ...

Hi all,

I quite like this photo, I was lucky with the timing, lack of people, the weather; the cloudburst that finished about two minutes before gives a nice reflection, and lucky with the 'antenna'.

I know that it doesn't follow traditional rules. I tried to get a bit of symmetry, a bit of balance without having too much dead space.

Insect man.

I think this is a really nice shot, Jacal.

But ...

There is one thing I don't like about it, and that is the fact that the floor angles downwards from right to left. It's kind of like seeing a wonky horizon on a landscape shot. I think that if you straightened the "horizon" here you would have a stronger image (even though that might cause the vertical lines above the "horizon" to look a bit skewed).
