Tilted a New Way

Lined up

It's been raining here for the past week, so time to dig into the archives again. I love the Santa Barbara Harbor (Marina? Does it have an official name?), and yet for all the happy times I've wandered around there with my camera, I've only uploaded about half a dozen pictures. At the same time, three weeks into my Project 52, and I noticed that a lot of my pictures rely on diagonal lines. Too many of them, perhaps.

So here's a picture from the harbor that's nothing but horizontal and vertical lines! I really love the parallel lines here, but I'm not crazy about this picture. I can't quite put my finger on how it could have been better. Different focal length, maybe?

I think if you were further back from the subject, so the dock at the bottom was more towards the top of the frame, that might work a bit better.

Alas, further back would have me in the water! But I don't think a wider field of view would have worked.

Maybe the second dock in the background doesn't stand out as much as it should.
