Indeed, impressive, and different from ohter many shots from the same location. I find it curious that either in Iceland, or Asturias, you have a tendency to frame your composition sometimes with around a vertical pivot line, with half of the frame apparently more "empty".

Vieri, did you ever explore cinematic aspect ratios for your images? And if so, what were your findings?

For this one I would personally consider 16:9 for example. Normally I am also a sucker for detailed foreground, but since there isn't much of interest here...

What's also interesting (and I mention it here because I believe it is generally interesting, not as critique) is that I would be inclined to tilt this image to visually level, not technically level.

Another fabulous shot, Vieri!

Than you very much indeed Mike, glad you enjoyed it! :)

+1.


Thank you very much Eric! :)

Thank you very much Paulo, I am glad you enjoyed it! :) Well, I think it depends from what I am getting in the frame / sky in terms of lines, especially, and then shapes - the use of empty space + leading lines allow me to give a sense of motion and direction in my frames that a "tighter", more classic framing wouldn't.

Thank you for your comment. Yes I do, most of my "horizontal" shots end up in 16:9 lately, probably due to the visual influence of the last TV screen ratios I guess. In this photo, though, I would never go cinematic because it would make me lose all the leading lines (either in the sky, in the reflection, or a bit of both) which I think make the image here.

About the horizon, I never go "visual" level, because of two reasons: 1. that is a very subjective thing, while the horizon being level is objective; 2. While visual level might work in small size presentation such as a computer screen, it looks very "tilted" if you print big (at least to me); keeping the horizon really level never lies nor is subject to interpretation.

Hope this helps!

Lovely!

Thank you very much indeed Matt, glad you enjoyed it! :)
