Parliment at Day

Uploaded: October 07, 2001


Kinda boring, wouldn't you say. Flat light does nothing for the picture and large shadow creates a lot of dull negative space in scene.

Yes, but you could crop out most of the shadows and end up with a strong photo. The angle at which you shot the Parliment building is much more interesting. I like that it's not straight on. Jeanette #1067

Thanks for your comments. Your right, the photo can be saved a bit by cropping away the dead space. The upload is mainly intended, though, to be a comparison between a day shot and this night shot of the same subject.

Thanks again, #1654
