    If it were me I would crop some of the dark from the top but I'm far from an expert. Nice shot.

    What you've got here is something great. One reason I admire users in this "beginner" forum is the fact that simplicity in subject is chosen, but compositions turn out eye-catching. Great stuff. Heck, without the chimney this would look great. I like the crop you have right now..the darker portion of the photo balances out for the lighter hues that make up the approximate 3/4 of the photo.
    I just noticed the pigeon and chuckled hahaha.

    Great stufff..keep rolling with simplicity. It's your planning and archictectural thinking that makes any "ordinary" scene into something fabulous...you've got that going here.

    Goodbye

    Go with the cropped version. I'd maybe burn the upper right corner to balance your dark tones in the lower left, maybe add a touch more contrast to the clouds too. Nice shot though.

    No expert, but as I have been on here longer and longer, I find myself looking for the little corners, the imbalances, etc of all the photos. The cropped version looks great, and I personally like the dark at the top, it shows the lighting below and is a nice contrast.
