After completing a shoot in Stockton, CA this afternoon, I was driving around the city looking for subject matter prior to getting on the highway. It was the end of the day and I viewed this sunset at the end of a road in an industrial area. I liked the shapes involved to create a silhouette; the bridge, the trees, the signs, the street lights, and the irregular structure at the end of the street.
As it turned out, I increased the Shadows slider to open up the foreground and bring back some detail instead of having complete blackness for a silhouette. Without the small bit of foreground detail, the image would have been less interesting with the huge amount of undefined black.
