I love this one! The black/white is perfect for it as it focuses the eye on the repetition. Great composition!

Excellent B&W tones. It takes a great eye and photographic skills to make such a great shot with little post processing.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo at the University of Washington on Lake Washington where they rent canoes to people.
Time
This was at the end of the day and I headed down to the lake hoping to get people returning the canoes for the evening.
Lighting
I like to take advantage of the light at the beginning and the end of the day, so I think that light helped me out here.
Equipment
My camera is a Panasonic Lumix g2. the lens is The Panasonic 14mm f/2.5. I had no tripod and used no flash.
Inspiration
I went down to the lake hoping to get some nice shots of people retuning their rental boats for the evening, but there were very few people around. I was stuck there alone with all of these canoes. But I like to challenge myself to see photographic possibilities in almost any situation. I then noticed that all of these boats might yield good things picture-wise and I shot them from every possible angle. Most of the shots are boring, I think. But when I saw that one of the boats was drifting away from the others I saw a chance for improving the composition with some asymmetry in an otherwise pretty symmetrical scene. I'm big on the golden ratio, if never fails me, so I placed the drifting boat on righthand 3rd and all of a sudden I had a picture that worked.
Editing
No, I didn't do any.
In my camera bag
Almost nothing. Just an additional lens. A zoom lens: 45-150mm. That's all.
Feedback
I had almost given up on getting a picture at this location, but I kept walking around trying to see what I had missed. My advice is to ask yourself what picture you are not seeing. Ask what would a better photography see that you are missing. Challenge yourself. I am a stickler for using things that work and find that "the basic rules" work more often than they don't. So I am big on the rule of thirds and use it a lot. It really helped me out here. It made the entire image work. Without it I don't think I would have much of a picture. Don't be afraid of the basics -- they will save you.
