MoMA Lobby 2

This is one of the few images so far in the “Visual Whispers” series that I have not cropped.  This is because I typically have not been able to fully anticipate how the image will look once I have a chance to see an enlarged image closer to what it will look like as a print.  This makes a big difference to me in determining how it works compositionally.  I almost always crop in order to get what I think is a pleasing composition.  But this image worked itself out in camera.  I like the triangular composition with elements at 3 of the 4 edges of the image.  All I had to do was tweak the saturation, adjust values, etc.   I continue to love the ethereal nature of these images and the ambiguity of the figures and their grounding.  Although this type of soft-focus work is all over the place I do like pushing it and seeing where I can take it.  I have some other shooting ideas that I will be experimenting with over the next couple of weeks.
