This is one of those photos that I felt I couldn’t keep hidden, but I was struggling to try to figure out how to make it work visually.
I shot it in color, but as I was reviewing it, I realized that the bright yellow bus in the background needed to be played down a bit.
I wanted to keep the focus on the man and de-emphasize the yellow bus, so I converted it to black and white and did some minor edits in Lightroom.
Now I’m pretty happy with it.
And all good things work out in the end.
