    The image had to be cropped and ended up pretty long. Learnt that Instagram doesn't allow this dimension.

    Any comments on whether photos are usually kept at "standard" aspect ratio?

    C&C pls.

    Thanks ! IMG_0713-2.jpeg

    That's a cool light fixture! I think the crop works well with this subject. I would envision this in print, perhaps a canvas, and that allows much more aspect ratio freedom than Instagram. You could also digitally matte the image by overlaying the image on a standard aspect ratio background layer and the final exported image would look as though you just added a border.

    Only things I can think to mention about the image are to maybe push the processing a little to add some more contrast between the lights and darks. Second, and this may not have been possible, but it looks like you were fairly close with a wide angle lens. The perspective distortion introduced makes the upper half appear distorted in relation to the lower half. Perhaps step back a bit and use a longer focal length?

    Thanks a lot! Valuable comments. Will get a longish print for a good location on the wall at home.

    Good eye about wide angle and close up! Dint have much space here, but something to keep in mind next time for perspective!
