Steephill Lincoln

By seejayess
To those of you who know Lincoln - this is a rare moment on a sunny saturday afternoon! The child (not mine)was the only person showing in this very popular area so I grabbed the moment - as HCB would have done.

Great pic, if the subject had been a little closer to the camera would it have been perfect, but then you would have either lost the effect of the street lamp or the shadow interacting with the drain cover .......... but then the whole thing would be spoilt by the van that drives past..

I do like it, but it does have a surreal, or even unreal look to it. The foreground seems overexposed slightly and doesn't seem to fit the sky and I'm wondering what that little girl is actually doing...she has an odd stance and pose.
So many questions.

Gorgeous setting and the subject really is good here. Lighting might be a bit strong. Give all of the challenges this is excellent.

Thanks to all for the interest - Keith the girl was trying to drop a pebble down the grateing and you've guessed my deception!!
The sky is "borrowed" and I must now come clean. There were more people on the pavement but the girl was actually there.
I feel better now :-(
