Autumn in Oslo V

We´ve had a mild autumn this year. Even early in November there was still leaves on many trees here in Oslo. But now it´s over and we´ve entered the transition phase between autumn and winter, which can be quite grey and dull photographically. But sometimes limitations can be the inspiration you need to try a little harder.

Impression

Sometimes a subject may make a stronger impression if you avoid looking directly at the subject. By focusing on the impression the subject makes, for example its shadow as in this image, or its silhouette, some details may become obscured and other details may become more pronounced. And you may see a side of the subject you have not payed much attention to.
