I don’t know why, but this photo makes me feel as though there is something either dangerous or precious being guarded behind this scene. It’s a very interesting photo with the intense detail and contrast within the branches of the tree, and the subdued turquoise of the old street lamp.
I shot this in the evening light on a very cloudy day with a Carl Zeiss 135mm f2 APO Sonnar lens, and I don’t think any other lens could have pulled this much color and quality out an ordinary scene that was terribly washed out by the cloudy grey light of the day. This is straight out of the camera with no processing of any kind.
