Something doesn't feel right about it. I think it is the horizon / perspective. The stairs aren't level to the viewer and it feels a bit weird.

I also think it would be more successful in portrait orientation, with more sky and less stairwell. The real interest is the woman, dog, and light, which are minimized in this composition.

I agree the angle is a bit to the right. I would make the vertical line behind the woman true vertical and let the rest fall as it may. I think the woman and dog are actually only accents to the geometry, however.

Hi friends!
Thank you for your attention and comments. For ease of understanding presented photos attached to some photos of the same environment were shot from different angles. I am very sorry that I did not travel to ponesao wide angle lens, the result would have been better. In these photos I wanted to catch the contrast of shadows on an oval concrete wall.

Tilting the camera down would have helped a lot in the first shot. The last 3 don't really have interesting compositions. Too much shadows and not enough interest in the areas out of the shadows.
