The Prancing Horse


Seen at Easton Town Center, Columbus. I can't help but notice that every time I go to Easton I see some sort of super-hot car parked in very conspicuous parking spot. How long do these guys have to drive around the block before they get these parking slots?

That angle with the sunset and the tree in the distance and the horse rearing up towards the horizon...

Do you use something like that reflection on purpose or is it just a silent quality that you notice afterwards when you look more carefully at the scenes you just instinctively shot?

In this case, I angled the camera with a deliberate intention to get the interesting sunset light on the paint. The tree reflection was just a happy accident. I wish that the lamp post and signage (seen directly behind the horse) was not there, but that's tough. In many cases, I would shoot lots of slightly different exposures thinking that when I looked at them on the computer, there would be more visual elements that show themselves to be either plus or minus and I'd pick accordingly. However, in this case I only shot two exposures. I was very, very close to a very expensive car and I thought it best to get out of there before the owner returned.
