I can't stop laughing but at the same time simply amazed. To me your edit is unbelievable.

Hards80, to be honest I didn't notice the trash cans and was very impressed at your pic until I read the comments (and still impressed -- with or without the trash cans).

I don't know if it's a NY thing but I'm guessing it's because trash cans are "our friends".

The second perspective is my favorite. And Bynx, great job taking out the trash!

You make it sound like Bynx is a garbage man. If I were Bynx, I'd be offended. Come to think of it, Bynx, do you mind taking out my trash, too? It's under the kitchen sink just kidding!

Not only moving the trash cans helped (a LOT) but cropping in closer helped too.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that preferred the perspective of the second one, especially because I love the b&w, the tones and the texture. I kept trying to like the first one with its off-center lines, thinking that it must be a more artistic picture or something, and that I should appreciate it more than I did (I'm serious, composition is what I find hardest about photography). The second picture is very much more to my liking. And while I definitely prefer Bynx's fix, I don't find the cans that much of an intrusion in the first one.

thank you Jack, Mntgal, Simple, appreciate it

when i was first reviewing these, i thought i liked the offset perspective. but after going back and re-editing with a horizontal aspect ratio and straight on perspective. i agree with you all that preferred that shot. it works better with the vanishing lines and gives it a better symmetry.
