    I think you should crop the left side the same way as in photo 2. Leave the right side like it is, but crop the bottom up to the bottom of the nearest pillar on the right building.
    It will leave the building in the center of the image in a more dynamic location.

    the first one is more pleasing to my eye.

    I find the second more pleasing. The first has that piece of sidewalk that doesnt lead down the canal. In strict composition, the first doesnt present a clear path to the far off building.

    this any better?

    i think i may like it more. Maybe i was being a bit too bold sticking the building in the dead centre

    I like the DOF in both. The comp. is a little better in two for me.

    I much prefer the original. It calls me into the picture. The others are dull.

    Yeah that's it, JohnMF. With maybe a tad more of the bottom.
