I actually like #1 best. That's the one you eventually submitted, right? Had the hydrant been the only major part of the subject, the narrower vertical crop might work. Since the building NOT saved by the hydrant is part of the story (at least to me), it's important not to diminish it.
I agree, but compositionally the crop was better for the weekly assignment, fire hydrants... I felt from a documentary photo style the building expanded the story... For the assignment I felt the main focus had to be the hydrant... Thanks for the comments... Jim
