Behind the Photo: Manchester Construction

Posted By on Fri, Oct 21, 2016 at 2:40 PM

Construction worker Kenneth Wells is part of a crew installing natural gas pipelines in Manchester. The scene could be from 50 years ago. I love the shadows in the foreground and the way the lights only illuminates certain parts of the scene. The light and shadows in the image, coupled with the graphic rows of windows, strengthen the composition, while Wells on the old Ford tractor brings a nice scale.

Photo info: 1/100 sec at F22, 24-70mm lens, at 26mm, Nikon D750.
