Exercise Positioning a point (page 72)

I have taken photos of a Bhutanese Dzong (fortress) which in the misty surroundings acts as a single point in the landscape.

I have positioned the Dzong off centre to the left. I feel the point dominates here with the eye moving left to right “just as we read”.

I have tried placing the dzong to the right  but it seems less significant here.

I feel the third placing fits quite well in the bottom right of the photo: the eye is led to the fortress  and it is more imposing in the foreground rather than being hidden in the misty background.
