Catching the sun

In the botanical Hamburg today. I thought it would be a quiet day there. But nearly 100.000 ;-) people thought that too. Normaly I can lie down and make such images with a lot of time to find the right clipping and light. But it's not a good idea to lie on a way, when other people want to make their walks...

So I got the just the light and not the clipping.

It's a spleen of me to crop at the most the small difference between view-finder and image. In digital times a photographer has only four duties and responsibilities: to find the right motif, to find the right light, to find the right clipping and to adjust the camera. These things I want to make with my eyes and camera, so this picture isn't cropped....
