Fine Art of the Urban Landscape

In this photo, I captured the tree in front of the building with a telephoto lens. Then I cropped the image, converted it to black and white, and added a cyanotype effect (a film effect of the old days). In the next image, I adjusted the white balance to create more contrast of colour. I like both image because they illustrate how an interesting image can be created by contrasting nature and the urban jungle. As well, there are the elements of art in the image–line, shape, colour, texture, pattern. One of the most important aspects of taking images is “learning to see creatively.”
