Playing with Light


One of the many things I like about digital photography is that unlike film photography you can shoot as many photos you want and choose only a few that you really like. This was the case this evening. I shot about 25 photos of Hoyt Lake and Marcy Casino at Delaware Park and these two are my favorites. What I like about these two are the color contrasts. This was achieved by not only long exposure but also the light around me. The blue in the sky was the result of the time that I was there-- l'heure bleue, which is one of my favorite times of the day--and the red foreground is from a series of lampposts, which are just out of view but shone on the water directly in front of me.



 Urban Simplicity.
