"Shadow Play"

Shades Of Yellow

"Shadow Play"
©David A. Ziser

Here is another image from the Cabo trip last week. The image is of a simple garage gate.  The high afternoon sun cast the shadow of the pointed top part of the gate on the the yellow wall in the distance, hence the fact that the shadow is "out of focus" on the back wall.  I also positioned the camera so that the last left and right vertical shadow elements would eventually be hidden by the fence elements in the foreground.  I also positioned the curved shadow element - the top part of the fence - so that it would fall in the bottom third of the composition.  In essence, the shot was designed pretty much from start to finish - it was not just a grab shot. Color, of course, was enhanced in Lightroom for the finished result. Camera specs Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 200mm, F10 @ 1/800, ISO 200.  Enjoy!  -David
