St. Francis Cathedral – Evening – Two Versions — Make That Three
Update: Alexandra made a point about another position for the photo, so I just added another shot that I took that night, so now there are three photos.
A little less than two weeks ago, I decided to go out at dusk and take some photos of downtown Santa Fe. This time I took my tripod with me, as I knew I wanted longer exposures and so hand holding the camera wouldn’t do. I didn’t get the photos I wanted, as the city had temporarily put up powerful lights that made the shots I wanted impossible, so I decided to walk on. I came to the St. Francis Cathedral (http://www.cbsfa.org/home0.aspx) and took a lot of just normal shots, which turned out very pretty, but then I decided to move around and see if I could get some more creative imagery.
I took these two shots, and I like both, but I’m not sure which I like better. They are basically the same shot, but one includes the statue and the night sky. The other is a more just about the architecture of the building and those immediate details I wanted to convey. I keep going back between which I like more. Do you like one over the other? Do you like the photos? As I keep looking at them, I see things that I’d like to fix (maybe a softer feel, maybe the color just a tad less yellow), but I don’t know. Overall I was really with satisfied the results. Thoughts?
