Shadow and Silhouette

Take advantage of shadows. They add drama to the photo, depth. I was at the Lincoln Memorial and saw how the shadows were being thrown against the walls by these massive Roman columns. So I walked around a bit until I found a spot where I thought could make a nice photograph.

As I was setting up for the shot I heard the footsteps of somebody coming around the corner. So I just waited...when this stranger steps into the picture it turns an otherwise nice, kind of abstract photo into a dramatic scene with a human element.

Shadows and silhouettes... gotta love 'em!
