Urban Affair by gilad Urban Affair by gilad

A city
A textured wall
The sun slowly setting
The shadows falling
A woman passing
A city goes to sleep


****

This location is on my path from work home.
I drive through there every day, but always when the sun is too low for these shadows.
I entered a note in my mind, that when I'll have the chance to pass there with the shadows falling right, I'll stop for a shot.
That day came yesterday. I stopped, and there it was.

Ramat Gan, Israel.

the shadows dwarf the girl, :heart: that effect.

this is nice....
i can actually feel the city slowing down its pace
and entering its slumber.. :)

i love the textures on the wall.
and the shadows give a very.. gigantic dimension sort of feeling.
especially with only one woman there.
feels like her surroundings are much, much bigger than her. :bucktooth:
also, the sloped part of the wall....
i don't know. every little detail makes this photo a great one. :nod:

i'm glad you managed to catch this, finally!
composition and all are wonderful too.
well done! :thumbsup:

Shadows can be the one of the most interesting subjects, especially with that kind of strong sunlight in the beginning of sunset :) Very nice crisp texture and contrast!
