I can hear a faint voice of my imaginary Photo Master...Tunde, never put the horizon in the dead middle of the frame!...but Master I wanted to show the steps what lead us down to the beach and a sky looked so nice too. Had no heart to crop the clouds, forgive me Master...
Have a fine new week to all of you...seeya

nice show of everything.. I can understand the critique of the master and your own wish.. cropping is the solution of course.. (and you know it) and use a (little) mirror in front of the cam to reflect the sky in.. I would have cut the sky away.. When you scroll the photo a bit down, you can see why.. The emphasis is much more on the stairs.. and it makes the photo even more beautiful.. but i think your master will survive this once in a life time moment-capture good work..
Stellar composition, even with the horizon in the exact center of the photo, Tunde! Every so often it's good to go against accepted photographic philosophy, master or not. In any case, those clouds are a distinct winner, and I love the depth, color and perspective of the whole image!
It would not have the wind sheered clouds, the pounding surf as well the pounded rock ledge. Nor would one have the overall perspective without the path to all this heavenly beauty. Besides having never paid much attention to the rules, "I say give me that horizon".
amazing work love I think you would have lost the imapct of the image had the top been cropped good call on not cropping. it's good to know the rules but as an artist ypu should know why and when to not to folow them and in theis case I agree completely with your choice.
