Some pictures are worth 1000 words… this one is only worth one, cold. You can feel how cold it is outside in this image. This was taken very late at night with only the light of a single streetlamp. The wind was howling and everyone escaped the cold into their warm apartments for the night. It’s a very simple composition so I had to fight the tendency to start increasing the exposure to get a brighter image, but that immediately took the feeling away from the photo. This is exactly how it looked to my eye, and that’s what I love to capture in every photo I take.
