Colour of light...


The colours of any city scene can be transformed when you photograph them at night. A camera, when used correctly, is able to capture a wide spectrum and vividness of colours. It can turn an everyday scene into a shot which may well surpass your original reckoning of how effective the final shot is. Ideally I prefer to use a tripod when photographing any architectural scene at dusk or night but for this shot it was hand-held as I spotted its potential whilst on a street level-bound subway escalator in Munich Germany. I was on a deadline to catch a flight home so there was time only to see it, compose, then shoot.
