Just wanted to share a shot of Burger King with you guys... hope its the right section.

Anyway, I was out the other day and just loved the colors and contrast, but I still feel something is lacking from the picture.

Advice and CC welcome!

I realy like the tones in this, the sky is hazey at the botom, the colours just seem really nice and soft.

Seems like a perfect summers evening, even got the BBQ done for you haha!

Nice colours. I think the building is too central, but I'm not sure how to place it as the sky is as important. Too late now, but maybe apply rule of thirds by stepping back some more and get a bit more of the right side, thus putting the high part of the building on the left third. Also I'm not sure it's quite level?

Thanks to both of you, I did have another shot where the building was not too central... but I didn't like the contrast as much... maybe its just me.

If you would be so kind to tell me which you think is a better overall shot, thanks again.

Rule of thirds or not, I have no qualms about your central composition, but the simple answer to why you feel something is missing in your 1st image - there's no foreground interest.

Image 1 is better from an aesthetical point-of-view than image 2, which has no clear defined focal point/subject.
