Winter Sun at Lunchtime

Out for a walk at lunch today, the days are so short just now that you only get a few hours light but the sun is so low that at lunch the light runs directly north up the busy streets in Glasgow City Centre, this gives extreme bright areas and very dark shadows so you can get a great foreground to background contrast.

The streets and alleys crossing east to west are all in the shadows this time of year, you can get some interesting settings. This image below was not staged, I just got lucky with two guys walking in opposite directions, it immediately felt like a movie scene so I edited it in post to change the colour to a dark cinematic style.

A lucky photo, these guys didn’t know each other, it just had a cinematic feel.
