  #172 Arches
Entry 6 of 28
Multiplied Arches       ©2016 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       6th place, 94 points
1/320s, f8, ISO 160, 40mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
Post-Processing: Cropped, adjusted exposure & midtone to emphasize the inside of the structure. Increased vibrance and saturation. Cloned out small trash pieces on the floor. De-noised, sharpened and finally resized for posting.       Extra Info: This is a cemetery not too far from us. I had seen pictures and knew it had lots of arches. I happened to show up when the sun was just at the right angle to cast shadows on the ground and reflection on the wall. A memorial service had just finished and people were leaving when I got there, so I didn't even have to crash a funeral!

Interesting, I thought my Main entry was stronger, but this did better.

    Neat shot. I like the double reflections. It's a shame the floor is a bit washed out due to the bright light. In my favs.

    Lovely use of light and shadows to show off the many arches. The reflection is intriguing.

    in my top ten for sure, love how you used the light and shadows!

    Suits to the topic. Several arches, well composed.

    Beautiful lighting and how lucky you were with your time of arrival. You must have been delighted. In my TT.

    Great shot with all those shadows and reflections. You have handled the light conditions very well. (And that tree is beautifully framed, too!)

    Nice composition and great use of the shadows. I also just realized that the right side is actually a reflection from the polished surface. I think if you crop down from the top it keeps all the good stuff and eliminates a lot of ceiling that isn't interesting.

    Very archy. Top 10.

    Nicely composed. I like the vanishing point effect of the arch and tree. Well done.

    Arches, shadows of arches and reflections of both. The more I look, the more I see. In my TT.
