|Thanks Steve, for your visit and your interesting considerations.
Interesting, indeed: before uploading, I had hesitated between two versions: this one, or a square format leaving out the shaded part on the right (= a version I uploaded on my FB-account some time ago). I'm finally glad that I opted for the original framing and it is interesting to see that you precisely underlined the compositional balance between light and shadow.
As to the golden light, it actually is evening light, but I like that you interpreted this in another way. I purposely did not mention this aspect in the note, as I prefer to leave some liberty of interpretation to the viewer. So, even if I took this photo in the evening, your interpretation makes sense to me. It is the mood that matters...
Kind regards & CU ;o)
