Twisted Tower

This photo is taken from the coastline of Malmo, Sweden (I was actually standing on a rock in the water). I felt as though the tower made an excellent focal point from that angle. I also thought the failing sunlight washed the building and surrounding land in a soft gorgeous light.

The facing rocks serve as a partial frame leading the eyes of the viewer to the twisted tower. I find myself wanting to crop from the right and left edges to create the illusion that the the tower is closer than it is. An overview image for me with my intent to climb the rocky hillside to get a closer view of the tower.

The tower is a very small part of the composition and little of the design details can be
seen , at least not on a small screen. The foreground rocks take up about 2/3 of the
frame and overwhelm the small tower. The comp might be helped by cropping about
2/3 of the rock area and opening up the shadows. A vertical comp would better
emphasize the tower and eliminate the excessive space on each side of it.
