I love gates. This is the first of a few gate shots.

Gates are great.. so are fences. Good beginning!

Firstly, love the shot,and the contrasty treatment works so well. Secondly I love the way that many gates are like this-solidly(Probably locked) shut, but no wall or similar next to them so you can ignore them. It always strikes me as odd...

Beautiful drama and scratchy graphic texture. I'm going to love this gate series.

@DULCIE: actually there are only four; however, gates are not uncommon in my photographs

Nice contrast. I am not sure the gate is very useful there as I cannot see any fence in continuation.

I especially like the processing and contrast in this very nice "gate" shot. It makes a very attractive black and white image.

Dark and dreary, but very graphic. Can you tell I've been missing our FL sunshine? It did return today, finally, in spite of the cold weather!

Nicely done. The contrast makes this image more intriguing. What do you suppose is beyond the gate????

@willow: I know what's behind the gate. I stomped around there taking pictures.
