The Power of Shadows - i would like to share this image again with new editing .... you can see the previous version and compare both, your feedback is highly appreciated thanks!!

from Cube Breaker

1950s Hong Kong Street Photography from Fan Ho

Diagonal and vertical lines. The diagonal line is the main focus of the image, it gives a sense of excitement and energy, shows direction. Vertical lines on the side give height to the wall, gives a business-like and masculine feel.


I think the pattern from the layer of shadows contributed to making this an artistic shot. I do feel that the repetition has created some movement for the viewer's eye, guiding it through the image. I also found it interesting why the photographer chose to do a side view instead of a front, perhaps so you can see the shadows of the patterns clearer.
