"Must take that picture"
Okay, let's put some real meat on the table.
take on buildings is somehow different from most, while I do take
picture of buildings alone, and I have taken some good ones in the past
week, a picture of an empty building to me is boring. Unless it's part
of a brief or assignment, I keep well away from such. Many here on
Shutterchance will differ, I respect other peeps viewpoints :-)
On the other-hand if it tells some story somehow then i'm all for it. Throw in an interesting angle and bob's your uncle :-)
On to today's shot, Central brussels, The architecture here is almost
identical to what I've seen in sweden, amazing, After walking for over
6 hours I actually thought that I had crossed the border somehow!
It's a rather cheeky shot, once again, using a wide angled lens,
exposing the background properly means that one has to use some form of
external light or reflector to illuminate the foreground. This was
achieved using my faithful canon 550ex speedlite.
I was practically at this man's back, but he never saw me, he was too concerned trying to compose his own picture properly.
With this kind of shot my many objective is to give the viewer the
sense that he/she are actually in the picture or at the scene

This sometimes can be used to add a dynamic feeling, it works mainly (
But there is no clear cut rule) when the picture contains at least one
dominant figure, other than an in-animate object.
