Urban Shape #21

This was taken on Dago Street, at the intersection with Sulanjana Street, across the Dukomsel building. At that time, I visualize different picture. I put the white wall on the left side (not shown on the frame) to strengthen the curve line. But it turns out to be a major distraction. Big white wall against the gray toned paving are compete each other, very unpleasant to look at. I treat this picture as failure.

Last week I look again to these shots and I see the potential to be a good picture. I heavily crop the image to get the one above.

I don't like cropping. It's like playing cheat. There's something wrong in my process in taking this shot. Maybe I should use 50mm lens instead.
