Default Geometry in Composition: Trapezoids?

Here's another in Chicago on Lake Michigan. The lake shore at this spot is all concrete and steel. This is at water's edge, as you can see. It's on the edge of a very wide, multi-level walkway.

Here's another shot to give the above some better perspective.

I like both shots though, in the second, the foreground seems disconnected from the background.

Love the first shot. It exudes a feeling of power.

The first shot should have been shot with some symmetry in it since its basically an abstract design.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Yeah, I know the second shot isn't that great, but it was the best one I had at that angle.

Bynx, thanks for the advice. That's the type of thing I need to learn as I'm setting up a shot.
