The cows got out

Broken gate in the abandoned Prospect St. barn.

 

Lesson:

 

Don't be afraid to re-shoot, if you miss the first time out. I shot several frames of this broken gate a few days before I shot this one. For various reasons, I was unhappy with the earlier shots- they weren't as sharp, the light was too direct, etc. I looked at the photos I thought I should like for a long time, until I began to see where I had missed. The second time, I went back at a different time of day, with a specific eye to the thin layer of clouds I needed to diffuse the sunlight. This was the result.
