Photograph: “Symmetry” by Alessio Orrù (username “Alessio Orrù” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: This image caught my attention because it combines nice symmetry with a human element. Judging by the shadows this image was captured on a sunny day. But due to underexposure and maybe the use of a color filter (digital or analog) the image has strong contrast with a nice grey gradient in the sky.

Due to this process the image has developed a mood of solitude and loneliness and thus starts to tell a story and carries emotions for me.

Great job on your vision of what you wanted the scene to look like when you captured this image Alessio. You have created a beautiful piece of art.

About Marco Larousse

My name is Marco Larousse and I'm a journalist and a fine art street and documentary photographer - www.MarcoLarousse.com. I have a background in photography of about 30 years and the power of telling a story with only one image keeps me motivated and fascinated every day. My approach to photography is "reduce to the basics". Growing up with the limitations that film photography has tought me, I still enjoy the basic approach to photography today. The camera is my tool, a mere extension of my instincts to capture what I want how I want it. I am one of the hosts of the Photofocus.com Podcast ( #mirrorless and #inspiration shows). I am also a speaker and writer for photography related topics. You can follow me on twitter @HamburgCam
