Kissing Gate

By netta1234
This is one of the few old Kissing Gates around here,they are replacing them with new onesthat are not as interesting as these.I was concentrating more on the shadow here.How would you have done it? and which way would you have looked at it.If you have time ,Please let me know.Thank's,Smile

Hey what's Nathan been up to - tell us more!
Netta I didn't know that's what these were called.I've learned something already today.
I love the shadows.I'd maybe have cropped shadow at bottom of image.
Otherwise I can't think how else you could have tackled this one.
Well done.GrinKisses to you KateSad

You have captured the shadows great, the colours light and detail are good too.
The only thing is I would have gone back a bit to get a bit more area in shot to improve the comp. Just my opinion thoughSmile

I used to love taking the 'public footpaths' and going through these gates.
I didn't know they were call 'kissing gates', just thought they were away of
keeping the animals from getting out onto the roads and other farmers fields..
I think the shadows are good but perhaps cropping the bottom to the white stone.
This would emphasise the rest of the picture from distraction……..
Great capture……..and story……….

You obviously wanted to get both gate and shadow in your frame, and you achieved that...well, just. For me, it's all a bit tight in the frame. Although I like the angle, I think I would have tried for a low viewpoint more to the left, with the kissing gate's lovely curve in front of me, filling the bottom of my frame with the curved shadow, then allowing a bit of the scene behind the gate to be in view, taking the viewer's eye through the barrier and into another dimension, that beyond the gate. If the orange tie were taken away, and the straight gate were open a little, it presents the viewer with an invitation to go through.

Yes, makes for an interesting capture with all the curves
and shadows.
Well done.

A lovely detailed shot. The dark shadow on the bottom is distracting. Well done. WesternRed.
