    I don't think gates possess the sentient thought necessary to say anything :blackeye:

    No, but a photo should ;)
    Maybe if you tried some PP effects? It doesn't really cut-it as it is... Sorry!

    you can take a photo of a rock and make it say alot. In your picture...nothing says nothing.

    This gate could have a lot of potential. Try retaking the photo when the light is interesting-- perhaps with the sun lighting just the gate, or full sun to bring out the color. Get closer to it, or better yet, get down really close to the ground so you have the patch of grass leading up to the gate and the gate itself, but very little else.

    There's an intelligent response.



    As for the photo, it's not too strong IMO. If the gate is the subject I think it should take up more than 10% of the photo...it's tiny!

    Also, a more interesting angle would help on such a common subject.

    This photo shows a big amount of spring green, which is why it does "speak" to me, after all. Maybe the gate doesn't "say much" at this point, but the view does. As does the bit of red leaves from that other tree whose English name escapes me just now (or to tell you the truth: I simply don't know what a "Rotbuche" is called in English! :oops: ) which adds to the "natural frame inside the frame".

    I like the kind of tunnel and the green of the grass leading us to the gate.

    But then I am the known, TPF-inbuilt sucker for this very colour ... !!!

    Sorry, how does this sound. "It's a little to bright for my liking, put some DOF in the picture to give it some thing more to look at than just a flat picture, and place a focus point on the picture. I feel like i'm looking at several things, when I should be focused on one."

    that was what I was going for. the plants arching over making a natural frame is what gave me the idea, but I will take advice and try to make it better. :)
