Photograph: “P1040052” by Wang Jeff (username “Wang Jeff” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: Modern architecture and symmetrical structures are always a good spot to look for when you want to shoot street photography. Add the human element and the architecture image is filled with life and sometimes stories.

Due to the high dynamic range when photographing from a fairly dim interior at a bright window it is often a good idea to expose for the light outside the window and automatically underexposed the shot for the interior. This way you will get dark silhouettes of people who are walking or sitting in front of a window.

In this image having so many people spaced perfectly in front of the windows worked perfectly. Good job!
