Downtown Greensboro Cityscapes, Part 4 – Elm St. Vignettes

Here are some street scene vignettes I found interesting during my recent expedition around downtown Greensboro.  The shapes, textures, tonality and lighting seemed to all contribute to a nice composition.  I hope you enjoy!

Downtown Greensboro Cityscapes, Part 3, Abandoned Garage

Found this cool abandoned garage on E. Lewis Street, about one block over from Elm St.  The patterns, shapes, lines and textures all contributed to an excellent composition opportunity.  I really felt this subject worked well in both black and white and color.

Regarding color, I often find I need to give my eyes a break when judging color.  Yesterday, I spent a lot of time tuning the color in the composition below.  This morning, just before posting, I felt the image was a little too green, and, I had lost some of the teal color in the garage door.  A couple of quick adjustments, and, done.  Glad I slept on it.
