Portrait or Landscape

It is sometimes difficult to choose whether you should take a photo in portrait or landscape format.
It depends on the long lines in the composition to determine the best solution.
Here in the large hall of the Oculus you can choose for both options.
The roof construction with the long skylight gives a long vertical line that can best be captured in a portrait format – Picture one.
The long curved shape of the truss construction, however, gives a strong horizontal impression, so that also a photo with a horizontal format produces here a strong composition – Picture two.
A solution with a square photo on which both the horizontal line and the vertical line is not the solution because the long lines are competing with each other in your eyes, which weakens the attention for both.
Unfortunately I don't have a photo in a square format to show that.
