Courtyard Gate

Building:  Logomarcino Hall
Location:  Ames, IA
Time:  3:48 pm
Composition:  Standing on axis with the entrance to the back portion of the courtyard.  I took this photo 20 times trying different combinations of the gate being opened/closed.  I chose this photo because A) the gate blocked out some of the washed out background B) I liked the weathered look of the gate C) Looking through the gate is much more interesting than looking through open space.
Process:  Tried to darken the background but wasn't too successful.  Upped the contrast in the foreground bricks to bring out their detail.
Meta Data:  36mm     f/11     SS: 1/40s     ISO: 100
