I like this photograph. Firstly for its subject matter, the rectangular apartments, which makes a monotonous, not to say depressing impression in the background. This effect is emphasized by the dark heap of dark soil in the foreground. (which is actually the center of a new roundabout, in summer there will be grass growing on it I assume). Secondly The actual flatness of the picture. The proportion between the dark and light parts of the image is balanced in a way that it becomes very flat. 3 D seems to disappear. Thirdly the light. The sun disappearing behind a bunch of hazy clouds, so a very soft light source is at my back. Diemen, 4.23 pm.
