More from the Urban Decay photo shoot. An interesting geometry of lines shadows and objects.

Thanks, Dustin. During our Urban Decay shoot, we passed by this clean concrete wall which very neatly divided a shiny new office tower from a crumbling alleyway. I was struck by the extreme sense of order in this composition.

Cheers,

Agree it is a good composition, and a nice graphic design.
Took me a while to figure out it was a bike rack :blah:

Thanks, Peter. Here's another angle that shows the source of the circles more clearly. (I think I like the original better)

By the way, on this photo shoot there were mostly film photographers, with everything from pinholes to vintage medium format... and everyone in B/W, so I set myself the challenge of shooting for B/W (shooting in colour mode, but with an eye for B/W conversion in post) in full manual mode to force myself to think through the process.

i too prefer the first version.. more interesting to me not to fully know what it is that is casting that shadow..

the 2nd one i would have cropped a bit off the right hand side to take out that far right shadow and get the subject a bit more off center..
