Analysis of a good street point of view

On monday morning ( during my usual Street-Photographic tour ) I found an interesting place: an underpass:

For me it was interesting because there were 2 reflection points and 2 prospetive lines:

So the first kind of photos was to use the reflection of the puddle ( with the camera posed at the street level ), but I didn’t like it: there was to much distance between the subject and the reflection:

Perhaps a “little” crop could be useful to obtain a better picture:

The second option was to change the point of view with another subject:

But the subject was to big for the reflection: he didn’t completely fit in the puddle..in any case I realized that I could use the reflection on the left ( here it’s highlighted ).

Before to work with the new reflection, I thought to take the exposure on the shadows ( a spot measure ) to obtain a “kind of ” tunnel of light:

and I waited for a human subject:

Here after some works on the lights and a little crop:

But I was not satisfied…so I started to work on the reflection of the panel. The first shot with 1 reflected subject…

…and the second one with 2 reflected subjects..and this is the final picture:

I took a lot of pictures…and I took me a couple of hours: patience is the real trick 🙂
