Photos I Wish I Had Taken: Peter Turnley

The complexity of an image can make or break it. Have to much going on in the frame without a reason or a focus, doesn’t draw the viewer in, it repels her. Capture layers within an image that build upon a mood, enhance the story, evoke and emotion, and you have gold.

Capturing layers is something I want to work on in my street photography. Hell, all my photography, but I’ve thought about it more and more recently after spending time in Cuba where the streets were filled with so much visual inspiration.

This photo by renowned photographer, Peter Turnley, spoke to me immediately. The layers: the woman, the windows in the background, the reflections of the handrail and the churning water, come together to make a riveting image.

What do you think of this picture?
