Is there anyplace better to shoot than a narrow alley?
This is wonderful. The tight composition using the constraint of the towering walls. The beautiful light. Great shot, Ian.

I like how you used the ray of light to represent that the alleyway continues beyond. Normally, we would show a space between the two sides of the buildings to show a normal walkway. You have 'closed' the walkway in a sense and both sides of the buildings almost seem to touch each other. Very clever perspective. Great tones on the walls.

@aggie: thanks aggie, I only had a few seconds to take the photo but I did compose it so that both sides were touching so that there was no sliver of light between the two - it just seemed more intimate that way.

I really like the repetition of the light... emphasizing the same narrowness of the buildings just the same as the path. SUPER CAPTURE - because i can see this was timed to Perfection!
