5 Reasons I Took This Shot

Five Reasons I Took This Shot

1) The Cross; it really caught my eye and I wanted to take a picture with it being the point of focus.

2) The Fractured Fresco; I loved this fresco on the wall and how it curves around only the top part of the image, I used this to contrast the monotone of the rest of the image. This meant I had to use a low angle to take the picture.

3) The light; was defuse outside which was emphasised more through the glass, this meant I had to use the soft light to my advantage. I used back lighting to create the silhouette of the cross while having the opposite windows to light the fresco.

4) The Texture; I loved the different textures of the scene, and how even with the soft light they were contrasting against each other.

5) I liked the composition; the being the focus of the lower half of the image with the top of the lining up with lines in the window surrounded by the fresco. The other textured areas of the image also frame the whole seen nicely.
