Birmingham_02

By optik    
Thank you to all who voted on my previous upload and thank you to Saulius, Alan, Peter, John, Alfie and Mile for their valued UA's.

The vertical shadows were a bonus for me in this scene, my desire here was to capture someone with black trousers (against the light) and a white shirt (against the shadow), I waited awhile and this was the best subject that came along. It's nearly there.
I have found that if you loiter for a long time it attracts unwanted attention, it's better, imho, to keep moving and return.

Have a good weekend, thanks for viewing.

Your patience was rewarded.
Super timing, just right, you wouldn't get better unless you set things up.
As for loitering in Birmingham, just sit down on the pavement in a sleeping bag. You could even come away a few quiod better off Wink

Works an absolute treat for me! The light on the guy against the dark shadows is what makes this work so well. Top street photography.

Stellar shot Phil wonderful timing with the light and shadow cutting him in two . Wonderful-light and motion working fabulously together.
