Day 5

 

Last day of the 5 Day Challenge.

I like doing cityscapes. I try to accomplish one of two things when shooting them – either show lots of human activity or total absence of human activity. While doing the latter I look for a way to make the city scene seem dark, forbidding and like a dystopic remnant of the future. This image was made on a bright semi-cloudy January day in the afternoon. By metering for the highlights and making the image B&W I made a normally bright reflective city a dark place with dark widows of mystery.

This is the only digital capture in the 5 day challenge.

This challenge was fun. Thank you Ellen Crane for challenging me.
