    Looks like you've found a site with some good potential. It'd be great to return either a little after sunrise or a bit before sunset to see how the light's longer wavelengths affect the tones of the bricks, and to see what happens with longer shadows and texture.

    Nice find.

    Agree, good find with LOTS of potential, and agree with the times of day recommeneded; strictly a technical nitpick, the wavelength of light doesn't change with the time of day, the reason for shooting with the sun low in the sky is because a softer light and gentler shadows are produced as a result of the sun's rays having to travel [effectively] a longer distance through the atmosphere.

    LOL, you're absolutely right. The wavelengths don't change! The shorter ones don't make it through all that atmosphere late in the day or early in the morning.
