After I take the shot and am walking away winding for the next shot it dawns on me: Hey, the full frame is a SQUARE! I didn't have to be all contorted fighting the sun and all that, since it doens't matter if it's sideways or not, it's the same both ways!
yeah, like I said, I'm a twit.
fwiw, I think I got a really nice dynamic shot of a high-power line stand. One of those big metal ones.
