A closed and shuttered window. From the rust around the edges, this window's shutters have been closed for quite some time. I shot the composition with the intention of taking a wide crop and putting it into monochrome. The pattern wasn't very interesting in color anyway. Once I took it to black and white, I performed some dodging and burning to make sure I got the effect I wanted.
In the end, I wound up with a wide pattern that widely resembles a fabric pattern. I love the high contrast, diamonds on stripes. Despite the foreground and background being in focus, I also like the color differential, and how it really separates the two of them.
