While walking with his camera on an elevated jogging and biking trail beside the Tama River in Tokyo, Your Shot member Danilo Dungo paused beneath rows of power lines that had caught his interest. Wanting to use the scene, he waited for a subject that would make for a dramatic combination of foreground and background, employing a tilting LCD screen for better framing and timing.

Dungo's shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
