    your comments will definitely help me to grow

    hmmm not choosing this spot
    so you're saying that even if esplanade isn't cut off , the composition would still suck??
    where do you suggest?
    You have to work out the best spot yourself but before that uou need to study each and every building in the scene and look out for balance, proportions and hierarchy to work out a composition. In this instance, you don't find having the Esplanade (big and clunky) being placed on the extreme left and having almost nothing on the right a good balance?

    frankly
    i'm very new to composition concepts/theories

    I've read about the rules of third (which i didn't use in this instance as i wanted to include everything it it didn't turn out well )

    the golden prime areas (some people call it the rules of fifth)
    converging lines
    perspective from a certain point of interest

    so i'm pretty new to "weight" and "balance"
    For passion or prestige? A trend or a niche?

    Rules do not guarantee good photographs. You can only be taught what rules are but the more critical part of it is knowing how to apply them or throw away everything in the book when the scene calls for it. I'd suggest you study works done by others in detail.

    the thing is
    i don't even know some of the rules, at my stage of photography i need guidelines

    hence i'm planning on investing in photography books
