photoblog image The Gate

The Gate

A simple shot of a gate and a window but the shape of one to the other, and the shadow on the wall , just seemed to be worth a photo, and the shadows in the foreground from a nearby shrub seems to fill the foreground.

There is never a 'simple' shot, love the shadows, great composition, love the B&W, I am not eager to tell you, I think that the shadows of the shrub is distracting...sometimes the shadow is just there I know and ther is not enought space to crop.
I like the picture though very much.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, you might be right about the foreground shadows on second thoughts. As always I once again enjoy your comment.
Works really well for me.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I had a feeling this might be your type of picture.
Superb composition Brian. I really like the subtle shadows reflected in the window!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, like yesterday it's not the type of thing I usually take, I'll shall have to look for more shots like this in the future.

Love the way the gate shadows on the wall confuse the eye into thinking they are part of the gate. I like the shadows on the window too. Plenty to think about here.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I saw the shadows of the gate originally and that is why I took it. Not my normal type of shot, I must look out for more.
I like the play between the two different shapes and also the shadows in this.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, it was the shadows that caught my eye in the first place.

Yes, absolutely brilliant. There is so much to please the eyes. Superb, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I'm getting to like this more each time I look at it, are we allowed self congratulation on SC?
This is a real feast for the eyes: a very nice shot indeed
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Chris, again something a bit different from what i normally do.

A simple but very effective image; one that could have been easily overlooked. Well seen and captured.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I'm not the world's best at seeing a decent shot but this time I was lucky.

Well spotted, how many of us would have just walked on by. Love the b&w and the shadows.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, it's usually me that walks straight past a picture without seeing it.

geometrical scene... very interesting..
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment, it was the geometrical shapes and the shadow that caught my eye in the first place.
Well worth a photo. Ideal for b&w and excellent lighting
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the photo was taken about 2 p.m.when the "experts" say we shouldn't take pictures, I think the lighting is o.k.as well, what do they know!
