the problem with vertical landscapes is there is no air for the subject to exist. best...jf

@ordinaryimages: Thanks for your thoughtful comment, which, coming from someone of your talent, I take seriously. I do agree that there are times when the vertical format can seem tight, but I confess that's often why I like it. But I want to keep your thought in mind as well as I continue developing. I appreciate the feedback.

Light and colours are most attractive! I happen to find VERTICAL shots very interesting!

I like the superposition of different stripes of vivid colors & the warm light. Good shot.

This is a wonderful shot, so many different levels to progress through, and the verticle format allows this moreso than landscape.

so nice colors,
Like Evelyne I like the way your picture can be divided in several stripes of different beautiful colors and textures

May be what you like with vertical frames are the different range or bands showing various colors and textures and like in this picture beeing more or less horizontal. Keep taking vertical pictures if you prefer it this way...
Here the light is wonderful especially on the wall. I would prefer your picture without the lower band but I am not sure why... Your picture is very symetric with the wall in the middle making a strong separation between the top and the bottom.

@akarui: Thank you for your very thoughtful comment and also your continued visits. Actually, you are absolutely right that I find the vertical interesting because of the way it "stacks" colors and textures on top of each other. I know you can do that with horizontal shots as well, but somehow my eye usually sees in the vertical. Thanks for your perceptive comment, and also for sharing your own fine work on akaruiphoto.
