This was taken on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. I was just wandering the streets and happened to look down this alley and the lamp caught my eye. There are many of these little lanes and alleys (or wynds and closes as they are called) on the Royal Mile and each one is so different. It's a great city to wander through.

Always liked this one, the perspective looking through the alley has a nice sense of depth and the lamp is a good anchor point. The geometric designs of the windows and their colorful outlines give a splash of color against the white facades. What catches my eye the most though is the simple, shaded curved line from the building on the left, it's a great contrast to the many other hard lines/straight edges displayed. Strong composition and perfect choice for a vertical format. Awesome shot!

The composition is simple yet effective. The perspective is chosen cleverly with the street lamp well places against the backdrop of the windows. I would perhaps have cropped away the upper windows which are incomplete, and a little at both sides to make up for that. I have attached a WS - hope you will like it !

like this! A rich mixture of elements and lines that come together so attractively. A compelling composition and subtle light that makes the shot all the more satisfying and effective. Well done!
Enjoy your weekend - regards Brian.
