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
