Winter 5pm San Francisco Bay

Piece description from the artist

I'm interested in the emotions that ambient light can express depending upon the time of year and hour of the day in the same general location. For example, the clear, crisp bright sunlight of a late spring day in the city of San Francisco looks and even feels completely different from the cool, overcast light of this image and can make you feel differently as well. With this image my intent was to capture the dark, yet still very illuminating light of a cold, late afternoon, overcast, winter day composing it with the simplest of elements and using a long exposure to express the richness in the beauty of that light that also reveals the details of objects so well.

I'm also interested in how viewers perceive works of art in relation to their own personal life experiences, education, upbringing and and even their prejudices, which I found can also affect their reaction to it and how they perceive it that many times can bring out other elements to the work that weren't intentional on my part.
