How to make better cityscape photos: look for layers
First things first, I know this isn't a 'killer' shot. Its nice enough but hardly likely to win any awards. What I do like about though it is that it doesn't look like Glasgow. It has a bit of a Parisian feel I think. The mix of different architectures gives shot a timeless look.
What interested me the most about this shot before I took it is the different layers which can be seen within it. Each of which adds depth to the image. Fore example:
Layer 1: Victorian architecture in the foreground
Layer 2: The black tin building on the roof tops
Layer 3: A glimpse of 'old Edinburgh' - similar to layer 1 but more aged
Layer 4: Modern blocks in background and sky
What do you think, would looking for layers in your cityscape images help you? Do you have any other techniques for cityscapes to share?
