I had to stick my camera through some chain-link to get this unobstructed view- this was after a long day of shooting most of the day and my battery was dying, but couldn’t pass up this tower in the afternoon light. The guy that painted this mural has painted all of the Las Cruces city water tanks.

I love the way the shapes and colors here came out. This was one of the first ones I snapped. The only thing I don’t like is how blown out the sky is. I could probably darken it up in Photoshop a bit more…I shot in RAW, so there might be some other fixes I can come up with.
I love painting and photographing silhouettes- something about the clean lines really attracts my eye and interest. It’s tough to get a backlit exposure correct- and I usually end up doing manual focus if there’s something thin and delicate in the foreground like this scrollwork in our front door.
I liked both of these a lot, especially the second one because of the focus on the middle ground red leaves. Great lines and fun color.
