Building from 1904 Worlds Fair
Lens: 50mm Camera: K200D ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F9.5 

A true gem from the 1904 Worlds Fair! Building is the Jewel Box in Forest Park! This was one of my first shots with my new *16-50 lens.

Damn Brit

I think this would look better as a vertical. Not having the trees on either side would accentuate the symmetry.

Actually Gary I do have one composed just how suggest. It's vertical cutting out the trees. If you noticed the pond if front the shot I took has a great reflection of the building. I think its a really cool shot. I was thinking of posting next month in the favorite shot. I was afraid to post here thinking I wouldn't be able to post in that thread.

I actualy think square would do nicely.
Other than that I'd be really tempted to do it in B&W

Square's fine, but vertical would accentuate the leading lines and symmetry of the scene.
Nice one.

Horizontal, square or vertical, an important factor in shots like this is to have the camera centered in the leading line element. In this case your camera is about a foot (approx) too far to the left on the sidewalk. This adds a great deal of tension to the image. Good if you are going for tension but when you are going for symetry it really mucks it up.
