The choice of framework/composition is one of the most important things in photography.
Why did I intuitively chose for this type of composition? Perhaps because concrete is a heavy material as well as the rusty iron in this picture. It could be the explanation why the cross is placed more downwards.
We are conditioned to look at an image to see top (sky/clouds) and bottom (earth/ground). Sometimes we try to explain why we made a picture, but are unable afterwards.
It’s the enthusiasm of the photographer that makes the click.
The old Dutch painters (like for ex. Johannes Vermeer) were masters in dramatising scenes. Like this image, the Dutch sky is sometimes full of clouds. This scene is shot on a sunny day at a train station called Amsterdam Lelylaan. The Iphone was pointed to the right light shutter speed and lens opening conditions. These are the two tools you work with as a photographer, the Iphone works automatic (shutterspeed vs. apature) so I played a bit to get the right sky.
This is a “wink” to my first post about photographing sunsets. Some people say it’s the most beautiful thing to see.
The funny thing is: “We always want to judge and see for our selfs”. With this image i keep myself curious about whats behind the black part in the image. Again, this is no Photoshop, just shot-as-is. When was the last time you first asked a question before you judged?
Try to understand, before being understood!
