“The Dutch,” 131 Sullivan Street, SoHo, New York City
Sometimes I need to slow down and think more about what I’m shooting. A number of you know I’m not a flower person, except for yellow flowers that is – tulips, daffodils, and sunflowers just make me smile. So when I saw this arrangement in a window of a restaurant in New York City, I had to stop and take a shot.
When I opened it up on my computer, I immediately saw how I could have made it much better. See the woman just coming into view behind the orange vase? Yup, the human element would have been awesome. Perhaps not her specifically, but someone with a flair who would have added another layer of interest to the final image. As someone who loves to shoot urban landscapes, this should have been a no-brainer. Guess I was blinded by the delicious yellowness of these gorgeous sunflowers!
