Day 299 - Composition, light and timing
I didn't have much time to take pictures on my lunch hour today so I only took a few. I was amazed at how brilliant this tree was in the sunlight, even though there was some waiting involved. I was looking for a period, however brief, when two things were true: the sun was, in fact, shining and the road was empty between the camera and the tree.
I'm pleased with the shapes, colours and textures in this photograph. I also like the way the tower on City Hall provides a backdrop for scene. There's nothing special from a camera point of view, however: I took the shot using the fully automatic setting. This photo is more about composition, light and timing. I think all three turned out pretty well.
