Didn't shoot in quite a while. Today I pulled out the filter system and went to the rhine.

Nice, il ciclista. I wonder if the second photo would be improved by removing the left part of the building, for more symmetry.

^^the left or right? The angels horn from my eyes looks in the middle. Taking more would make it asymmetrical no?

I meant removing the triangle you see of the building, set back from the wall where the angel is. Not cropping, but photoshopping it out, so the angel's wall get the same amount of black on each side, giving it more of a monumental, symmetric feel. I've never done photo manipulation like so, only using cropping, colour and contrast controls on my simple snaps, but I know lot of great photos are tinkered with like this, so maybe it's something worth trying.

If it's film, I guess it could be acchieved by dodging and burning.

Ohhh gotcha yeah that would be fairly easy to do. I'll give it a go, thanks!

This is with the left bit out, it does add symmetry, but does it look like something is missing on the left or is it just because i've seen it in person and my mind is wired to know that it isn't correct?

That sounds likely. I can't say for sure which is the better version, but when seeing the first I was slightly distracted by the part now removed, and I do think it works well in the edited version.
