This is the Oxford-University Depot right on the edge of the Ole Miss campus and a few blocks from the Oxford Square. I always enjoy seeing these old historic buildings, especially when they have either been restored or kept in great condition. They offer some great architecture that really makes it stand out from all the new and modern looking buildings around it. They always seem so much more sturdier than newer buildings and they probably are since they have been around so long. This building was built in 1872 and like other railroad depots in small towns was a busy place back in its hayday.
I used the same preset that was used on yesterday's photo, only tweaked less for this one. Sometimes the preset just sticks as it is on a photo (which makes editing much, much quicker) and instead of trying to play too much, you just have to let it be great like it is and keep your hands off.
I really like the shadows in this photo along with the curve in the foreground, which I think creates a little movement and leads the eye up and into the center of the photo. Most of the time I think I see composition instictively instead of take a lot of time to get a composition perfect. I think that I just know it when I see it. Obviously, you don't always get it just right and maybe even completely miss the mark. It's great to be able to crop photos to adjust composition, which is what I did a bit with this one by rotating the image slightly and then cropping off a bit of the left side to get a symmetry on the building.
