Dont´t let the sun go down on me.

A story behind: With the music "Dont´t let the sun go down on me" featuring Elton John and George Michael in my ears I shot this picture. Lovely weather, lovely time but some strange sorrow filling the air.

Composition with the "rule of thirds" and points of interest matching the crossing lines but the horizon in the lower third. In general, place the horizon high or low in your scenics, but rarely in the middle. RAW to Tiff. B&W transformation.
