Photographers refer to the hour after the sun goes down as blue hour. It’s a magical time to be out shooting, as you can really play with the juxtaposition of cool and warm light.

I spent some time photographing this particular scene with different compositions, fascinated with the way the warmth from the man-made light receded into the cool blue of twilight. In the end, I decided I liked this composition where I omitted the actual source of the warm light, making it appear as if the window is being bathed in light from an otherworldly source.
