This is one of my favorite images. I found these ornate steps by accident and immediatly saw the potential for some great images.
Using an iPhone app called lighttrack I waited until the weather was suitable and the sun was just in the right direction to shine through the gap in the buildings.
Then I spent time looking for angles, features, curves and leading lines.
The plant is midway up and it was possible to stand directly above it. Careful framing gave a very pleasing composition. Now all I had to do was wait. The four figures appeared at just the right time and I like the motion blur in the guy on the right as it makes it feel real.
I have been asked numerous times if it was staged and I can honestly say, "No".
