Utah State Capitol

This shot was taken in the neighborhood at the foot of Ensign Peak. My initial framing was a wide angle shot that included the Salt Lake Temple on the right and the Wasatch Mountain Range on the left, but I was really unhappy with how they were turning out. They just weren’t compelling enough, didn’t have good lines, and were too busy. I switched to my telephoto lens and began to take shots that really focused on the capitol building and State Street (the long street leading away from the capitol building). I continued shooting as the sun went down and ended up with this shot. I really like how State Street leads away from the capitol building, leading the viewer’s eye into the frame.
