Title: momentary pause
There is a much used quote, along the lines of "If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough". Well that maybe true but my take on that is the opposite. Try getting further away - use your surrounding to influence your composition and image content. If you shoot people, focus on how they are framed against the background.
Traveling with my camera app open and my eyes scanning for a photographic opportunity. I visualised this image 30 seconds or so before I was in a postion to take it. I saw the figure from across the open space, while approaching from the side. I could see the trees were spaced nice and even and I have been waiting ages to use this building as a backdrop for an image. So I walk past, raise, shoot and walk on.
Process: Shot in colour with ProCamera.
Convert to B&W in Snapseed. Used Selective Adjust to lighten the area around the central figure.
