Winter Sunset, Covent Garden, London, UK

A bitter winter day in London’s Covent Garden. The low sun straight into camera and the reflections on the cobbles guiding the eye toward the centre of the frame, make the shot.

Technique: Shooting into the sun can be tricky. Flare, light bouncing randomly inside the lens is often a problem (a big lens hood helps), but exposure can be even trickier. A single stop of over exposure was made in camera, with further over exposure in post-production, plus additional contrast, dodging and burning.
