There's a spot on the other side of the Ohio River that is the spot for Louisville skyline pictures. I've yet to go when there hasn't been at least three other people there with cameras sitting on tripods and perhaps a dozen or more snapping pictures. It's places like these where I find myself thinking the most about the photograph and the way I'm taking the picture. It's not necessarily thinking about how to take a "better picture" but rather how to take one that is going to be unique of a heavily photographed area. In this case, not only did the weather cooperated to create a beautiful sunset but a lower vantage point and patience paid off in capturing a skein of geese flying by.
Sometimes it's finding the smaller details in the scene.
Then again, the spot is popular for a reason so getting the usual shot isn't a bad idea.
