Dusk of The Kings

A change of scenery today. I have not been taking too many urban/city images in recent times, so I decided to look through the archives for any photos that I might have forgotten. I found this one from 2015 from Krakow in Poland.

We had a few attempts at photographing a sunset over Vistula River and Wawel Castle but most of them did not produce the conditions we were hoping for. This one was the closest we got a a colourful evening. I quite liked its subtlety and the way that the sky looked with just touches of colour under the clouds. I also liked the last rays of the setting sun illuminating the castle and enhancing the warm tones, which made the structure stand out more.

I considered a closer, tighter frame around the castle itself but then I would lose the colour in the higher clouds overhead. In the end, I chose to go with a wider composition, including the river and the opposite bank in the scene and letting much of the sky and colours fill the frame.
