OUR PRO’S verdict
Frank composed his Shot of the Day really well. The viewer’s eye is moved through the scene by the strong lines of the river, to the horizon line where the wonderful blue-moment tones meet the gold and dark of the bridge further up-river. The dome is on the upper-right third’s intersecting point, providing balance. By selecting a shutter speed of several seconds and waiting for the traffic to move, Frank added extra interest with the bus light trails on the right side of the frame. The f/16 aperture, with the focus set around a third of the way into the scene, ensured optimal sharpness from front to back. It’s a terrific image!
