SHAPES OF THE SUBJECT - OR THE SHAPES ARE THE SUBJECT
The plan was to take advantage of the forecast of partly cloudy skies and small chance of rain. Should be great for some landscape shots of a series of waterfalls about 90 minutes from home. Well, by the time I got to the shooting location, the clouds parted and the sun took over. Water was flowing great but it was already 11:00am. I know I could have put on a neutral density filter to get the silky water but the water would have been blown out in the direct sun.
So, I gave up on the landscape search and went for something smaller. Little details, textures, shapes, and sizes abounded on this little town square. The color of blue caught my eye as I was walking past this door. And the rectangle of the padlock with the circular shape of the door lock forced me to stop and extend the tripod legs. A little processing in Color Efex Pro gave me something to bring home.
