I have noticed that the impression which people get from a photo is very interesting. I can change where I am standing by a few feet and get a totally different photo. But, what I have noticed the most is that a photo only captures a small amount of what I see. This can be manipulated in so many ways. I can not count the number of times that I have taken a photo right beside the road and, with out knowing where it was, you would never know that, just a couple of feet away, there was a busy road. I must say you can use that to great advantage. I would say that 70% of my photos are this way. How about you?
Today’s Photo: Afternoon Sky
I have spoken a lot of the gate which I see in the morning. I don’t talk too much of the gate I see just on the other side of the road. I really mean, right on the other side of the road. I have not had that much time visiting this gate lately. This is because the angle of the light at the time in the afternoon when I go past it. I pass by in the early afternoon and right now, the sun does not get to a good angle until about 8:30 P.M. However, I managed to get there a little later the other day. I just love photos like this where you can see the sun beams.
I have taken a few other photos of this gate including this old one: The Gate. And don’t miss last Wednesday’s daily photo.
Nice shot. Shooting direclty into the sun, even obscured, is always tricky.
I agree Kris. Shooting into any type of strong light is tricky. Not many are stronger than the sun.
