Street Shot With Reindeer

As much as street shooters hate to admit it, luck can often make or break a photo. Take this one. I was focusing hard on the cowboy looking guy with the plastic bag. It was very bright out and the resulting photograph was way over exposed. But low and behold when I knocked the harsh shadows back, what to my wondering eyes should appear but a reindeer in the window next to him. Bingo!

I initially was attracted by the harsh side lighting illuminating the guy sitting on the bench. However as I got closer and started takingĀ  pictures, the other figure walking away was also caught in my composition. As luck would have it, their blue clothes seemed to tie the two together and so not only did I not crop out the receding figure, it become an integral part of this composition.
