The Brookfield Hot Spot, Part 3

About This Photo Share Purchase This Photo
  • Location: Brookfield, Illinois

I love this photo.  I love how, with the wide angle nature of it, the house is shown in its full natural setting.  I would have gone back even further to get an even wider view, but a Jeep parked on the street was preventing me from doing that.  Somehow, Jeeps always have a way of getting in the way my photography (see this photo as well).

One small thing that tickles me every time I look at it is the way the blue of the Christmas lights is reflected it the tar on the street.  When I first noticed this, my immediate reaction was to remove it in Photoshop.  Then, as I looked at it, I realized that I just couldn’t do it.  It’s an effect that I would never have considered that really adds something (however little) to the photo.
