Financial District, New York
Hi Ed – nice one. Love the scale. colour contrast and shapes.
Might I be so bold as to suggest a slight crop? If it were my image I’d snip the left side to remove the white thing that’s just appearing in the gloom (clip to the third lighbulb at top). Without that little bit the dynamic is then between the two figures and the cube and ‘feels’ much stronger to me (threes always seem to do that!).
I love the snipped off top of the cube and the snipped off shadow of the left figure. Also the vertical wall rectangle with the right figure ‘in’ it (but stepping ‘out’ of) and the symmetry of the similar rectangular shape made by the absence of light bulbs on the left side, ‘inside’ which the left figure is just ‘entering’ (going ‘into’ the picture).
With the little crop, the line made by the left top edge of the cube will then ‘run’ down beautifully to the intersection of the left frame border and the point where light/shade meet (if you follow me?) Small things!
That said, I like it as is! A really well spotted image and you do these ‘ordinary’ moments so well. One of these shots I love to let my eye wander around.
Thanks for dropping by and suggesting that John. I felt significantly influenced by Ernst Hass when I saw this one developing in situ. I see what you mean and like the crop you suggest just for the “symmetry” of the intersecting lines. The “white object” was diminished enough for me to take little notice of it in the original processing but now you’ve pointed it out it’s almost all I can see. Small things indeed. They way the two people are almost invisibly hanging off the corners of the cube also attracted me to this one. I’ll do the crop and have a look, the revised image may well make it into a final edit of colour New York photographs I want to put together.
“but now you’ve pointed it out it’s almost all I can see.”
Oh bugger! Sorry!
NO worries, sometimes that’s just the way it is.
