I composed these shots as a late afternoon thunderstorm approached Center City Park in downtown Greensboro. It’s interesting how the water refracts light so it’s a mostly “negative” tonality compared to the background. When the background is lighter, the water drops and globs have mostly a darker tonality. And then the opposite is mostly true on darker backgrounds. Pretty cool, eh?
Local snow, sleet and slush, and an extended lunch break, offered an opportunity for some interesting urban cityscape compositions in downtown Greensboro. It’s interesting how snow can abstract both landscape and cityscape compositions.
In the first composition above, I originally intended to execute a straight monochrome approach. When I did however, the yellow center line lost a lot of it’s visual impact. So I decided to keep it in as a spot color.

This cityscape in downtown Greensboro presented a composition challenge. Horizontal (slightly wide angle) or vertical (slightly telephoto). Which do you think makes the best composition? I’d appreciate your feedback.

The rear view of this old building in downtown Greensboro caught my eye on a ride to lunch a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve visited the site several times. Once after a light morning snow, and another where I was shooed away from the tracks by a railroad employee. The front and interior of this building was recently restored and is now the home of a popular restaurant.
