Here is the view from my hotel room last Saturday night in New Orleans. Vertical and horizontal lines framing the bridge. It would have been nice to have a little less haze and a little more blue sky.

You've definitely got an assortment of lines but the composition is not the best, in my opinion. Not enough of the bridges are visible and not enough of the buildings are visible. I think you need to choose one or the other.

JustJody,

Having been in many hotel rooms with similar views I sorta empathize with this composition. The ad for this room probably said, 'Great View of the Mississippi River and Lgendary Steamboats." Madison Ave run rampant.

The vertical lines of the adjacent high rises contrast nicely with the horizontal bridge.

I agree the haze is a tad distracting but as Zackattack noted, "less haze in N'awlins?" Having been there several times it's true.

Aloha
