One more from the derelict multi storey car park at Margate, I liked the lighting on this, the security fencing and shadows cast onto the graffiti strewn wall.
Ironic this one, the security fencing was erected to obviously keep out the grafitti boys and wayward photographers like myself, obviously to no avail.SadWinkWink

I like the way you have gone for the composition here, Darryl, using both the spiked fence and its diagonal shadow with the black pillar about 1/3 across the frame. The shadow in particular is excellent and rather threatening. The bright orange makes it all leap off the screen; the black pillar and orange oblong by themselves would make a powerful statement.

I hope you won't mind a very minor niggle: The horizontal line top right (a wooden batten?) is angled and the resulting wedge very slightly disconcerting. Correcting it in software would remove part of the graffiti; but I think the strength of the image lies in the lies and shadows. Even without the adjustment the image is a strong one and very well seen.

Regards
Bill

Very interesting and strong composition. And can you read what it says? I will translate.

As has been pointed out, the image is skewed, but I think there is a fine shot here struggling to get out. For my money I would crop away a third of the left side of the image from the left edge of the dark pillar, leaving the graffiti best emphasised.

Really like your shot. It states the disregard that some people have for others' property. Love the shadows from the metal fence.

Creating the composition out of our messy, unartistic world. That's what the photographer's eye can do. Love this.

Excellent spot, Darryl. Lots of advice re crops, I go with mugshotmyk's idea, but I don't think you can go wrong with whichever. Fine graffitography Smile
