Mesmerizing Shadows on the Window

While waiting for Santa Fe’s Loretto Chapel to open, I spent time walking around the block. As it was early morning, the sun was side lighting buildings on the street. This side lighting created long shadows and highlights texture on the adobe walls.

This image is a split composition between the geometric shadows on the top half and the still life of the window and flowers on the bottom half. Unfortunately, the white flowers in the left side of the planter box are blown out and lost all detail. Being the brightest spot in the image, the eye is drawn those flowers and likely disappointed by the lack of detail.

A good composition, but flawed execution…
