Shadows, Warm and Cold

Waterbury, Connecticut

Lots of shadows and darkness going around. I'm going to be interested to print this picture. A nice effect, that probably won't be visible from the sRGB JPEG file on most devices, is the color shift in the shadows. The deep shadow at the bottom is warm in color because it's getting a lot of bounce light from the sunlit brick wall. The shadows on the wall are much colder because they're illuminated only by clear blue sky overhead. The difference is subtle but clear in ProPhoto colorspace on a calibrated display, so I'll be curious to see how much of that I can maintain, ink on paper.
