Something from a cold December night. When I am not overwhelmed from work I love to do photography walkabouts during late nights. Sometimes it is a bit dangerous but the photo opportunities are very unique and I come away with some good memories.
I typically use a lot of negative space in my afterdark images.Here is a shot captured around 2100 hrs. the day after Christmas 2014. I wanted to convey a noir feel with this image; the loneliness and cold of winter, but the hues seem overly warm to me. Should I bring down the warm yellows and bring up the blues and blacks? Compositionally, I should have moved the discarded trash more to the left but I don't like 'disturbing the crime scene' and left it where I found it. When you are setting up your outdoor, non-landscape shots do you re-arrange the scene or yourself to get the shot you are after? Thanks - John

As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I've chose, doors I have opened and closed"
