Beverly Garden Park, right on Santa Monica Blvd., changes sculptures every now and then, and recently they've installed some great ones, including "Endless V" by Jaume Plensa. It looks extraordinary, just driving by it, but I found that once one gets right up to it, the surrounding buildings, street lights and streets bring all sorts of unwanted distractions and light clutter to any attempts at framing it well.
I have several exposures that where I completely got rid of the extraneous light and lighting, but then there is no context other than this lit up figure. I'm curious to know what you all think of what I did leave in in order to highlight the figure.
Oh, we also could have arrived later, in order to have the sky completely blacked out, but I sort of like the deep blue.Evening in Beverly Hills #2
