Over The Bridge

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/125 second F/7.1 ISO 400 35 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

WOW! I was really struck with the color in this. Everything else supports it. When I am deciding to let a shot stay in color it's because the color supports the idea. This really was a good choice.
