Any great photograph which make you stop and wonder its beauty, whether it is a landscape or a street shot, is that way because of the way the photographer decided to frame the shot and never because of the camera and lens he is using. Sure, the camera is important to get the technical aspects of the photograph right – its sharpness, saturation and clarity, but it is just that, a tool to get the technical aspects right so that the photographer can focus on ‘seeing’.
I made this photograph while roaming around in the streets of Amsterdam besides the canals. I was lucky to be carrying my tripod with me that day which allowed to stop and set up base here for around half hour to get this shot. The clouds were just perfect at the time of sunset and the lighting in the city was just beginning to light up as it was getting dark.
