Hello. Bear in mind, I'm not a pro; however, I did feel compelled to comment. IMO, it doesn't quite work. Apparently, you couldn't get a dead on front centered view. But that's o.k. Unfortunately, the iron gate shows too much perspective from one side. Not only that, but the light reflection in the iron distracts from the subject: the temple. I believe that you are trying to frame the temple. Perhaps if not for the off center perspective, it may have worked. Chris

Chris - I was thinking pretty much what you have put in to words. I had armed milita standing on either side of me so I composed the shot quickly fearing that would say "stop" at any moment. I made some PS adjustments to the perspective of the ring and fear I made it worse, not better. Thanks for the comment.

What can you say- you get what you can get 8^D. Looking at it again, I would have to say that pulling as good of focus on the iron gate as you did while maintaining a sharp focus on the temple is a pretty fair accomplishment. Good day. -C-

I agree with Chris. Very good shot,notwitstanding slight distraction.

Does This Work? Thanks for comments.
