Entrée


This was done for the Inspiration All Around Us blog challenge, titled "Garden of Eden." I actually flipped the image horizontally as I wanted the entrance to be my focal point, and have it a bit off-center to the right. I also cropped in a bit closer in the image, again to point to the entrance. 

The light splattering on the fence and the shadows on the bricks are what really caught my attention in the photo, so I worked at enhancing them. I shaded the stone a darker red color as I wanted to add some warmth to the image.

I always love these type of entrances, where a tree or vine actually arc's over the entrance. Makes it rather inviting and makes you want to walk through. I'm hoping this one does invite, hence the name for this is "Entrée."

Makes you want to walk through indeed. Beautiful, Nancie!

This one is certainly inviting. I do love your light splatters on the fence and the shadowing of the pavers.

I really like your composition and you really captured those dappled lights. I would walk through that opening because I'm so nosy and always need to know where a path leads
