I took several shots from this spot as the sunset including several with Slinky Dog in the frame. Ultimately the Slinky Dog blocked some of the glorious sunset and made the image feel cluttered and unbalanced. This way the image lets you focus on the structure, the characters, specifically Jessie, and the amazing, glowing sunset. When I shoot a frame, I sometimes find myself trying to stuff as many elements in as possible, but this shot was a good reminder that sometimes less is more.
