Portrait and Landscape

I don't need to tell you what you are looking at here, or maybe I do ( I told you I was full of useless information following a red bus tour). Big Ben is the bell so you can't see Big Ben. What you do see is the Elizabeth Tower. The other tower is called the Victoria Tower. You can also see the time and you know it is morning because there are only one or two photographers and one or two vehicles to be seen.

The obvious difference between these photos is the orientation with portrait on the left and landscape on the right. There is also an obvious change of emphasis within the photo. On the left your eye is drawn to the reflections in the river and if that is your intention then that is how to frame your photo.

Happy snapping
