|Patience, and a watchful eye, are two attributes that every photographer should carry in their kit-bag.
They help me make a silk-purse out of a sow's ear. Not that these two shots are "silk-purses"!|
In the first pair, I liked the shadow lines on the foot-bridge, but the full image did not emphasise them. Instead of just cropping, back here in my parlour, I took another shot just of the shadows, which satisfied me more.
In the second pair, I liked the rusty cyclone-fence, and the disappearing path. But a disappearing path is nearly alwways better with someone disappearing along it. All I had to do was wait, in this case, less than a minute.
