Description: It was late in the day and this side street was in heavy shadow when I took this shot. My initial capture was quite flat which was OK because my histogram showed that I had plenty of room in my shadows and highlights to extend the tones in the image. I boosted the contrast and blacks during processing to give the image more punch. The gargoyle was placed in the top third with equal space on the top and both sides. I’m a stickler for this kind of balance.
