---A good sense of misdirection:
I’m finally getting to know my way around Rome
... So much so that after exiting the metro station, on the way to shoot Castel Sant’Angelo at sunset
, I managed to walk 20 minutes in the wrong direction... Fail!
Needless to say I felt like a complete idiot because my original plan was to work around the area as the sun set, just as the city lights turned on. I wanted to capture the scene just before the last shades of red faded from the sky. Instead, I arrived at the bridge (Ponte Sant’Angelo) well into blue hour.
As luck would have it though, as night set in, the wind completely died, leaving the water face still as glass. So, instead of perfect lighting, I ended up with perfect reflections. I think it was an even trade.
