Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
From St. Louis.

(FWIW, uploading seems to have lost noticeable sharpness that I have in the original file.)

As always, comments welcome.

Not sure if this is a complete post?????
 
How did that boat get in there? I like the title and how it relates to the concept

However, you've framed it so the boat in the last part of the image frame most humans will look at.

The top RoT horizontal line is known as the 'eye line', because that's where people naturally look first when shown a photograph.
Plus, western civilization written text starts in the upper left corner and generally finishes in the lower right corner.

Perhaps you are speaking about Eastern humans because, last time I read a book it was left to right, top to bottom...therefore it is in its proper place. My nig is that I think it is a bit too small with no context of the space in which it motors merrily along.
 
Thanks for the comments. It is framed as such in order to crop out other barges that were near by. I had my short lens on as I was at the top of the Arch and expecting tight quarters. Didn't have time to switch out before the shot was gone. I suppose I could flip the image in post (to make the boat move left to right), but I agree with Ceeboy that the right side is actually stronger as our eyes tend to move left to right and then rest there. For example, watch seating positions on the late night talk shows. It's about the host comedian and they are always in the dominant position - right side of the screen. In contrast, if you watch in depth news interviews, the person telling the story is usually on the right as the point of interest. But anyway......

I'll flip it and see what it looks like.

BTW, this one is actually selective color....
 
I did play with flipping it and it does give the image a different feel. I think I like this angle better, but not that it is necessarily communicated. When I shot it, the boat was motoring upstream and I think the right to left movement gives more of that feel.

But I also played with the crop and came up with this one, which I really like - I think better than the full frame.

Definitely better than the full frame. Did you get any images of May Ann? ;)
