I really struggle to compose shots in this format; for some reason I always see in portrait orientation. It continues to be a source of learning to try to take photos in this orientation.
une jolie capture du mouvement de la soie.
j'aurais bien vu un cadrage plus en hauteur et légérement décentré ;-)

I think it is an excellent framing to get the move realy striking. I also like the perfect symmetry of the rope. Keep on with this orientation :-)

Nice framing ! 一番上まで写さないところがいいですね。

That is so exquisite. The movement of the drape is wonderful.

I know what you mean! I almost always shoot in the portrait orientation....But I always try to take a few this way too- sometimes the subject just calls for it! This one does, I think- it gives room to see the movement of the flags and gives room for the stairs to be at home in their place, and not crowded. (if that makes any sense at all!) Great work!

@Tracy: Thanks so much. I seem to see "instinctively" in portrait format, where the composition can be composed in geometric divisions that lock together from bottom to top, but I cannot seem to do this with the same ease in landscape orientation. Isn't that strange. But you are right: I just need to keep at it. I usually take a few each outing but I almost immediately delete them when I see them on the screen next to the horizontal shot. But it's a fun challenge to try, and having a new tripod helps me -- as do your encouragements and thoughts.
I like the framing and feeling coming from this image.

you did a fantastic job with this frame! beautifully composed... love the combination of lightness (breeze) and stoic wooden structures...

@ania @ papercutworks: Thank you for your visit and for the comment. Yes, I am often attracted to this contrast between complete stillness and soft movement. You can see two other examples here and another here.
A lovely landscape composition.

you shot it beuatifully...I like the symmetry behind the rope and the slighty movement of the flag....

thank you for pointing those out - both are incredible... i have to admit i like this one most - i like the space is accommodates / it's less dense/busy. but i love the greens in the other two. i'm a big fan of your photography...
