    I've been trying to think in terms of the vertical, rather than the horizontal. Perhaps other would like to contribute. Both are NEX-6, 35mm shots.

    levels.

    It's amazing how many people never even consider using portrait mode. I use it all the time. :)

    I think it's more than "landscape" or "portrait." It's about the orientation of the elements of the image.

    I think both are just compositional tools. Hell, even 45 degree shots work... sometimes. Whatever works for you.

    Really like the 1st one! Not sure whether you'd agree, but this shot I did last week seems to have that same verticality to it:
