Default Circles and Triangles - Sugar Shack

I think this works pretty well. Contains both circles and triangles. This is a little shack/hut on the grounds of a local nature preserve.

It looks like a good choice to me however the fence in the foreground is a bit distracting.
Here's a tip for you and anyone else interested. I learned this in a beginning photography class about 15 years ago. Never shoot a building straight on. As you can see from this shot, the viewer has no idea of the shape or size of the structure. Always shoot buildings on an angle that shows two sides. In this case, if you had moved about three feet to the left, you would have possibly eliminated the fence and included the left side of the building.

Thanks, Cal. I agree the fence is distracting. Honestly I wouldn't ordinarily have shot a picture from that perspective. I took this picture very shortly after I bought the camera and was just snapping here and there. If I remember correctly, I was trying to catch up with someone and stopped for 2 seconds to snap... no time for composition :-). But the point is well taken and I appreciate the tip.
