Jon Meyer Single Image Winner Cityscape/street

Fog, night and artificial light are my best friends for street photography. This image was taken on an urban foggy night. The night and the fog were right, but I had no focus until I saw the fog-shrouded, artificially lit passageway with light reflecting off wet pavement. Once I had the scene, I needed a subject. Patience became a virtue and I waited for pedestrian traffic. It took a number of shots—subjects bundled up, backs to me, running—before I could get that focus. Finally, the man in this image strode through, in a hurry but not too quickly, his head up, in full stride with his case, unaware of my presence.
