Ubungo Plaza (at a different angle)

I love the feeling of depth in this picture, and a cool thing is that it works just as well in all directions! Yep, i did rotate my laptop ^^.
I noticed the resolution is 17441780, that is not entirely 1:1, and i think maybe the few extra pixels in the height makes a difference. If the image had been cropped entirely square, i think it maybe i would`ve overlooked it. Sometimes its hard to decide how to crop an image, and i often end up with several versions. With pictures like this, the question is often how much sky or ground to include on one side or the other, but choosing to cut it entirely was a wise decision ^^.

I favourited this because its such a plain and simple image that i just instantly liked for some reason. Gonna try and figure out why:
I noticed someone suggested to check out the rule of thirds further up here, and just have to add that if you dont know about it already, you`re a natural talent :)
The reason this image is so intriguing is that every line and feature is just a little bit off.(!?:P) In other words, its a perfect example of originality or "deviation from the norms" of composition.
Aspect ratio is just a little bit under 1:1.
At first everything looks straight, but everything is off by a couple of degrees or a few pixels.
11 windows across instead of 10 continues the trend ^^
The crop is done so that the edge of the frame touch each windows edge on the left side frame exactly. This is hard to explain, but imagine this is where the image is anchored or hinged.
Babble babble :>

Hahaha oh wow! Thanks greatly for the time to write all this. I really appreciate it!^^ This is actually one of my favourites as I am really proud of the end product. I didn't even plan this in mind the first time, so yeah lol I did research more about the rule of thirds after the commenter who pointed it out to me here, and at first I didn't even have a clue how it was related. But as I went on, I realized that many a times before I had actually implemented it my photos (many or even most of which I never uploaded here).
I didn't know the angle was off by a little, but I guess its not so bad that way, right?
But thanks again; any "babble babble" on my work I appreciate a lot (:

I like it. (: It makes me think about how unity and conformity have a very thin line between them in a way, how a uniform can make everyone all and in the same and yet unite them under one banner if they look at it the other way. Great job! (:
