In suburbia

Just a couple of suburban dwellings, but I liked the way they were lit by the low afternoon sun while in the background the sky is dark with heavy cloud.

Picture house

This is the side of the Abbeydale Picture House in Sheffield. Opened in 1920, the building is undergoing a gradual refurbishment as a community arts centre.

Breaking the rules

One of the rules of composition is the “rule of space”. This states that there should be more space in front of an object moving through the frame than behind it. I’ve broken that rule here, but (to my eyes at least), I think the shot works well nonetheless. The fact that the man is closer to exiting the scene than entering it seems to add a sense of urgency (which is also helped by the motion blur).

But what do I know. 🙂

Looks familiar..

Yeah, that’s because it was taken in the same field, on the same day as the shot I posted on 2 Feb. It’s maybe not as nice a shot, but it still works pretty well thanks to the clouds and the curve of the path I think.
