    While I am a huge fan of horizontal compositions in street potography, it just does not work here for me. The black and white work looks fantastic and would love to see it straightened out.

    I think the sculpture stands out more to me in the second shot - the black and white definitely works well for it xxx

    I definitely like the second one better. The clouds have more impact and the sculpture really stands out.

    Not a big fan of tilted photos. Sometimes it works but most times it only give me a neck ache. In this case, it looks like the sculpture is hanging for dear life, trying not to fall off the face of the earth.

    Definitely prefer the horizontal one.

    I find that some people tilt the image so much, the subject seems to fall off the picture. Which is something I really don't like.

    However, the scupture lends itself perfectly to the "over tilt" of an image.

    I prefer the first one and great tones in the BW

    I think it is great that people can agree to disagree.

    I think the tilt work for it. Adds some drama the horizontal shot is missing. i like the idea that the sculpture looks like its hanging on for dear life. B/W definitely works for the shot.
