    I'm still learning...

    I was walking past this hydrant and liked the way the light seemed to fall on it. Honestly, is this an interesting shot as far as composition or am I totally missing the boat here?

    If you straighten it, it'd be a lot stronger.

    I was kinda thinking the same thing ^ he said but looking at the picture more closely it looks like the hydrant itself is vertically correct but the sidewalk it is on may be on a slope. Is this correct or have I been up for way too long?

    Overall I like the picture but I think it might be missing something?

    Yes, it's actually the building that is on a slant, which you can see on the bottom row of bricks where another row starts to come up out of the ground on the right side. It's over 200 years old, so the sidewalk buckles a bit, as well. The hydrant is actually straight up.

    I like it. Is the lighting 'as is' or was it done in PP?

    As is. That's why I stopped to shoot. I did do a little PP, but not on the lighting.

    I like the way it's acting as a spot light :)
