Barry,
I received your print today, thank you.
I do like your efforts and to me it is a typical Leica wide angle photo
that I am a fan of taking myself.
I'm pleased your wife enjoyed my print and was able explain why it appealed
to you. I too was educated in Visual Art and subconsciously apply the basic
rules of composition into my photography.
Do remember though it is possible to break all the rules in the book
and still end up with a great image.

Regards JON.
