Layered, architectural composition focused on light and shadow. Pleasing high contrast of orange and blue. Yasmine Rafii carries her camera most places and shoots all of the time. Some images become raw material for compositing, some are simple documents, most are deleted and a very few move forward into final processing. Each of Yasmine's deceptively simple, contemplative compositions are the result of many hours of shooting and searching out the right location at the right time. She says of this photo, "A window is an opening from one space into another. As a source of light, windows attract our attention and imagination. Here, the natural yellow and blue hues of late afternoon light are pushed to an extreme, creating a sense of the surreal and perhaps the sublime."
