This picture taken in front of Capri Pizzeria, which is located on Greenfield road in Southfield, Michigan, has been a popular one of mine. I never thought too much of it, personally, but a lot of people love the shot. I’m guessing it’s because of the nice light emitting from the bottom of the awning, and the multiple horizontal lines that give it a symmetrical feel.
Also, the three circular elements (both wheels and a clock) break that up a bit, helping to draw the eye to the subject, making the image feel more balanced.
For the techies out there, I took this shot with a Nikon D300 and Nikon 35mm 1.8 (new) lens. Here’s the exif data for you also!
