Ten Minutes To Shutdown
What’s Unpublished Today
There’s only a few minutes this time of year when the late afternoon sun strikes buildings in Uptown at a near-perfect angle. The strong sunset light lasts about 10 minutes before the shadows complete their creep across the sidewalk obscuring the brick facades in dark shadow.
Plus, I’m at the mercy of whoever and whenever someone decides to travel through the shafts of light, in this case, a young boy on a bike. There were quite a few who passed but were walking away. Not as interesting.
Interesting compositional highlights.
Used the tree to fill the open space at the top right and the trunk as a framing device to keep the viewer from falling off the right side of the photo.
Framed the left side with the shadow from the building across the street.. That same shadow helped darken the objects at the bottom right of the frame.
A second choice is below but it doesn’t have the same impact as the bicyclist with the better composition.
