i missed the ‘decisive moment’ on this shot. but i still like it. its a touch overexposed, but not for the kids. sometimes you’ve just got to shoot in the middle of the day, and deal with ‘bad light’. at least i do since i am normally sleeping or working when there is ‘good light’.
I took this photo laying down on my back on the ground looking up backwards at this statue and the building. It seems like that is one of the best ways to take photos looking up at things because it is easier to hold everything still that way and to be able to comfortably take your time framing the shot. I was trying to make the exposure for the statue and envisioned a slightly blown out building. Which is more or less what I have, but I love how the highlights just go on and on with the film (ektar 100). In photoshop i softened the blown-outness of the sky and building slightly by masking them off and adjusting with levels layers.
