About the Image(s)

hank you all for the comments you suggested when I submitted an image of this sculpture in November 2020. Your comments prompted me to return to the sculpture. I returned late in the afternoon just before sunset. Because the sculpture is located on a cement pedestal and surrounded by tall grasses with a building behind it I decided to do a close up. At the time I did not know the ends of the beams were lit at night which added some interest.
At the next Wisconsin Chapter meeting (January 24th) our club will be selecting images for the PSA Chapters Showcase. I plan on submitting one of these two photos but would like opinions on which of the two would be a likely contender.

How I Did It: Processed in PSE making minor adjustments (levels and saturation) and Nik using the Detail Extractor and a stroke around #2.
Camera settings: f7.1, 1/100 sec., ISO 400 Image #2 f7.1, 1/160 sec., ISO 400

Love the light on this, it is absolutely beautiful! I find myself liking the original more than the crop but I think you can crop the original . I think I would crop from the viewers left but keep the second set of bars intact. Bring the top down just a smidge and on the right. That orange light with the red highlights on the steel plays beautifully with the cool blue grey steel. Nicely done!!   Posted: 01/13/2021 14:46:14

Priscilla- As far cropping goes, my suggestion would be-don't crop from the right and show up to the infinity and don't crop from the top- only crop from the left side to make the image square.
An afternoon shot would be another try for you when the light is falling on the steel structure making an interesting shot.
Keep trying from different angles until you are satisfied.

This is quite an impressive sculpture. I like Shaikh's ideas as far as cropping.   Posted: 01/26/2021 20:22:25
