    Very imaginitive viewpoint. I like it quite a lot. When reading your title, I was wondering how they got a church to go through a gate...

    I imagine it was just shot through in a fraction of a second! ("shot through a gate in a fraction of a second" -- get it? get it? )

    Hi Pat,

    I like the rich textures of the stone and brick, but for me, having both the gate and church in sharp focus confuses what the main subject is. I think the composition might be stronger if the church was more out-of-focus so the attention would be on the gate and arch. The church looks like it has wonderful stained glass windows that would make a beautiful photo(s). My ancestors came from Cork in the 1840s; a beautiful country with friendly people.

    Pretty. Amazing depth of field. Is that HDR, or just a narrow aperature on a bright day?

    I like this type of shot, Pat. This image just needs a slight clockwise rotation to restore the verticals.

    Hi Folks,
    Thank you for your thoughts,
    I get it Colin, Paul this church dates from around the 14 hundreds and resides in a town called Youghal in the County of Cork.
    Scott, just a narrow aperture on a bright day.
    Best Wishes, Pat

    Hi Pat, this is a fine image indeed!

    Not being familiar with this scene and not seeing any EXIF data I was just thinking that this is one of those situations where, if you wanted to see more of the church through the gate, a wider angle lens should give you that opportunity to experiment with the composition.
