Opposite of Boston downtown and its financial district across the Boston Harbor is East Boston. East
Boston provides tremendous Boston Skyline Views
from where one can admire the skyline and the many boats crossing the Boston harbor. Using water reflections in a composition
to lead a viewer into and through a picture is a very effective compositional element. In
this latest night photography image I used this feature to guide the viewer into the Boston cityscape and towards its historic architecture landmark of the Custom House of Boston. Clear blue sky made for a picture perfect photography night out with a beautiful skyline reflection.
in this image was f/14 with an exposure time of 30 seconds at ISO100.
During my routine image processing steps in Photoshop I removed dust spots, adjusted lighting,
contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final Boston Night photography image.
When composing an image I often start out applying the "Rule of Thirds".
I don't use it as a set rule; more as a guideline or starting point for
a more intriguing photography image composition. In my Flower Photography I often lay the focus or point
of interest within the flower at one of the four intersections, leaving
room for the viewer to explore the image but also to be drawn back to
the focus point.

Letting in light: It's free, it's natural ~ use it wisely since there is nothing more appealing than a comfortable room bathed in natural light that changes throughout the day. Go with colorful vibe of beautiful natural photography artwork.
Brookline Coolidge Corner is famous for many iconic institutions like the independent book store Brookline Booksmith, the art deco style Coolidge Corner Theater, the buzzing Coolidge Corner arts Festival, the best falafel in Boston at Rami's, sandwiches Zaftig Delicatessen, icecream at JP Licks or for a great burger at the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse to only name a few.
The most iconic and famous landmark is the S.S. Pierce building at Coolidge Corner right at the busy intersection of Harvard Street and Beacon Street. The clock tower always stands out and I often mistake it as a full moon on a clear night. Last week I ventured out destined to capture the Pierce Building in a new light. Before dawn I positioned tripod and camera and awaited the magic of twilight. Traffic was minimal and no issue. An aperture of f/8 provided a 4 second exposure time at ISO200. During post processing I removed dust spots, adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image of Brookline Coolidge Corner Pierce Building. Good light and happy photo making!
