Out of the Shadows

One of the characteristics of cities with tall buildings, is the high contrast produced by shadows and direct or reflected light.

Technically it forces the photographer to not trust its camera auto exposure settings, and to be in control, which is good. It also strongly isolates the subject in the light, as background details vanish in the dark. A light underexposure will also enforce color saturation.

Of course, doing explicit choices instead of choices by default seems more difficult… but it is also more gratifying.
