Sometimes I break the rules. In each photograph, I try to devise an interesting composition. Photographs are essentially ways in which I can express what I see and my interaction with my focus. Usually, I am drawn to architecture and architectural details that reflect times when artisans left their mark. Modern architecture is beautiful in its way, too: however, I am frequently fascinated by the older structures and their embellishments. Recently I was with a friend in a space that has soaring modernistic forms. I loved the fluid shapes as they ascended to the top orb of light.
In post production, I try to adhere to the rule of thirds: each area of the grid must have varying values. Here, there is one allotment devoted to the darkest dark. I think it works. After all, the surprise element also keeps the eye moving around in the image. That is the optimal for any creative work.
