This picture is absolutely beautiful to me. Matthew Pillsbury was playing with shutter speed and lighting in this series of pictures called ‘New York City Slowed Down By Long Exposure Photography’. It has numerous elements of composition which were discussed in class. There is ‘Figure To Ground’ and ‘Frame Within A Frame’. It also follows ‘The Rule Of Thirds’ as well as ‘Fill The Frame’. Color is always wonderful but I feel that it takes a truly gifted eye to make magic with black and white.
