Steel silhouette

Steel silhouette - Ballycastle - photo by Alex Leonard

Photo Description

A swinging tire is suspended from this large chunk of steel in the playground near my apartment. It’s one of those shapes that always draws my eye when I walk past it and I think I could take quite a few photos from different angles before I got bored of it.

I’m not entirely sure about this photo. I like the shapes created by the silhouette of metal, but I’m not sure whether the over-exposed sun at the centre is a bit too much or not.

I pushed the blacks a fair bit in this one, and slightly darked the blues to match what I was seeing when I took the photo. Hopefully it appeals to someone!
