At a recent photography meeting the topic of 'scene junk', and the need to eliminate it, was raised by Linda, the expert speaker. In this photo I had to move in tight and at a strong angle in order to get a shot. I might have just passed up the shot altogether but I liked the shadows and the rustic look of the gate. In the manipulation process I ended up adding a soft look/glow to make the image a touch more ethereal. After all, this was in a cemetery. For what it is worth, enlarging the photo shows the image as intended, much brighter.
