Lighting Journal #45 – Manhattan Bridge

I really like the photographer’s choice in framing and lighting. I do think back lighting was the best option for showing off the massiveness of the bridge and to emphasize the linearity of it all. But at the same time, I do like that he left the sun partially visible for the glare since it really draws the audience’s attention to that column (aside from following the rule of thirds). The light’s reflection in the water also added to the column’s framing.
