When creating stock images, I often try to create both horizontal and vertical images. That's what did when I spotted this weathervane while walking in Lancaster County.
Trying to think about what the eventual user of the image may need or want, I also made sure there was plenty of blue skies - which can be used for text - within the image.
I've submitted this to various agencies now, and both versions of the layout. As I said, this is part of my routine way of creating stock photo images.
