Gate and cobwebs

Took this at Sywell. I was trying (a bit like yesterday's shot) to get a feeling of depth and symmetry. I'm more interested in the shapes in this shot so I converted to B&W in Lightroom. I added a slight vignette to offset the slightly distracting white areas in the top corners. It also has the effect of drawing the eye to the centre of the frame where the perspective clues are.

1DIII, Sigma 85mm f/1.4 wide open, 1/400, ISO 100


  1. I adore the symmetry of this photograph.

  2. Many thanks for commenting! Symmetry doesn't always work, but I felt it did here.
