Composition - Seeing the shot

Symmetry and moody lighting. Anyone think I should photoshop the reflections out?

    Very nice Paul. Although the Rule of Thirds is a great tool to keep in mind, sometimes a symmetrical shot like this results in a nice, clean effect. Gives the feeling of stability and order. Maybe exclude or crop the grass next time?

    I agree with Neil. Although the grass is negotiable. Not a big deal but might clean the balance up a a bit. PS the reflections. They break up the symmetry. Should be really easy to do with a healing brush. Good looking shot! Looks like you stuck around for a while!

    I agree with Mark about the grass it could easily be removed by cropping too.

    I love the composition. The symmetry is awesome. If the photo print is folded in half. It would overlap perfect. I am not what was the exposure used, but if it was me, I guess I would go one more stop over (not sure, if that would have 4 lights though). Thoughts ?!

    The downspout down the middle of the photo is the fold line.

    I love the symmetry. Just the right balance between the bright lights and the dark building. Great shot.
