Today was a great day.
The passing rain left everything with a sheen. Then the sun parted and began to bathe the city of Seattle with its warm glow.
As I walked around, I notice the light of the setting sun bouncing off the wet bricks of an apartment building on Capitol Hill. It was pretty cool looking.
The contrast was spectacular. Behind was the Seattle icon the Space Needle. It was pretty cool looking.
Unfortunately, from where I was at the time, the Space Needle was behind some trees. As I approached the apartment building, I could see that I could find a break in the trees.
While kneeling, I was able to frame the needle through the trees. I like this composition and the light.
So I began shooting and using the Sunny 16 rule. My in-camera meter was telling me one thing, and my brain another. So I exposed for the highlights using the Sunny 16 rule.
The light coming of the bricks was dramatic , I like the silhouette of the Space Needle, and I like how the tree framed it. It was a nice frame.
Upon beginning my edit, I couldn’t figure out what I like better, the vertical or the horizontal. Both good, but each has its strong point.
So I leave up to you which one is better. Please write in the comments which one you like best.
Thanks for reading
