Contrast and colours
Lens: 58 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Niagara Falls ISO: 100 Aperture: F8 
Posted By: JMR, 04-03-2010, 08:42 PM

I really wanted to shoot lamps and their shadows only, but was unable to isolate them in the picture format space. So I included the windows and tried to balance them with the rest of the elements. I think the contrast between all the elements works well.

Intriguing shot - I do like the contrast and the overall shot is very nice

Hey JMR - I love this sort of thing. The windows only add to the shot, in my view.

haha... this is nice one. Really like it... but I'd perhaps go for slightly more "punchy" finish

Thanks Jer. Once I decided the blue and its proportion was a good offset for the rest of the image, I concluded what you did.

I suppose I could boost the colours more, but I like it as is because it closely resembles what I saw. Thnaks for the comments.
