O.M.G this looks so much like the stair case I shot many many years ago taken in Malta where I had the luxury of staying for a week. But nothing in comparison to this wonderful shot great point of view and beautiful composition. Fantastic!!!!!! the window light makes this image for me. Just a very big applause. For an outstanding image.
Composure will do. I know what you mean and technically it's not wrong. The beauty of English is that people will try to interpret what you say and make it make sense. You can even use words wrongly to emphasise a point and an unexpected use of a word often makes people listen more. It's what keeps language alive.
Now, if I were French I wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about because everything has to be PRECISE and CORRECT!
A culture which has an annual televised dictation competition is committing it's language to the grave buried in rules and regulations.
(Hope there are no French people listening!)
