The hoops I had to jump through to make this capture!
Climbed a wall, leaned out, framed, waited for the clouds to pass, said "hello" to a couple of surprised cyclists - they didn't expect to see me up there! I double-checked ISO, exposure, etc. to pass the time, The clouds passed and I got the lighting back again so I made the shot.
I had to straighten everything in the digital darkroom and am v. pleased with the way it turned out.
Maybe I'm the only one ;)
Nice graphical work but why my brain sees this patch at the third part of the 4 division as red :-) Sincerely
I can see why you're pleased with this Mark. An excellent study of pattern and texture. The eye tends to linger on the vertical wood slates then gets swept up and over the roof tiles. I like it. :)
Best regards, Tom
I like this picture, V, ciao
Thanks everyone for the feedback. I'll revisit this sometime as I've since noticed how much more powerful it is with the bottom plants and brickwork cropped out.
There's a compositional rule about having things in threes and I think I mistakenly ignored it.
The thing about rules is, they're only there so you think about them before you break them. I didn't this time :(
Worse, I committed another heinous compositional crime(!) ... a good photo is like a punchy sentence, one verb, one subject, one object. I've made this photo about two things - the plants reaching up and then those wonderful angles.
By cutting out that bottom area, the composition should improve in two ways, and when this happens, their combined impact should more than double.
Scroll the image so the bottom of your screen cuts it off to get a feel for what I mean.
The lighting is amazing on this photo.
Tho I really didnt notice about the plants on the bottom until i read what you said... tho i see what you mean.. i still like it a lot.
Thanks Rafael and Ma500 :)
Buena composición en bandas.
