The Tower from the Theater
A couple of weeks ago, I showcased a view of the Tower of Terror at night, taken from an elevated perspective. Last weekend, I managed to make it to the park during the daytime for such a shot. One thing I noticed from my last shot (and something a couple of my friends pointed out), was that my crop wasn't focused enough. There were buildings on the sides that were a little distracted and detracted from the composition. So in retrospect, I should have zoomed in a little bit, like this. Ah well... lesson learned. In this photo, I decided to use a square crop--not only because this makes it ready-made for when I inevitably repost this photo on my Instagram account, but also because the Hollywood Tower Hotel's building mass is tailor made for this aspect ratio!
