Hang on, is that Harry Lime lurking just beyond the shadows? This high contrast shot from Chris McDaniel falls squarely into the film noir genre. Chock full of style and mood, it resembles a movie still, freezing our protagonist forever on the precipice of the story’s gripping conclusion. (EXIF)
We weren’t at all surprised when we started seeing some excellent fireworks shots appear in our Flickr pool last night. The pick of the bunch though was this one from the industrious philliefan99. He eschews the more predictable straight-on skyline perspective anchored by the Monument or other distinctive memorial edifice, instead framing his almost apocalyptic-looking shot to establish the relationship between the intense fireworks and the awestruck spectators.

The word “ominous” doesn’t quite do this shot from Kevin Wolf justice. We’ve had more than our fair share of storms this late spring/early summer, giving photogs plenty of reason to point their lenses skywards, though far too many snappers spoil what could otherwise be outstanding images with HDR. Kevin knows better than that, of course. The billowing wall of clouds has weight and texture, provoking a strong sense of anticipation of the impending storm. (EXIF.)
Welcome to our inaugural In Frame feature, in which we select an image to highlight. In Frame will normally run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Remember you can contribute to Exposed DC through our Flickr pool.
