Happy Thanksgiving for those of you in the States and Happy Thanksgiving anyway for those that are not!  So before an afternoon of excessive eating, friends, family, and football, let us get a post and picture in for the blog.

I really wished the ground right in front of this composition was not full of clutter.  The reason why is because the clutter forced me to zoom into the shot you see here.  What I did not realize is how textured the rusted metal sheets are.  From a distance, the rusted metal looks rather uniform, but once zoomed in and viewed as an image on the computer screen, it gives a illusion of grain/noise that takes away from the simplicity of the elements.  I only had 4 elements at play here: red metal siding, off colored metal door, tree trunk, and leaves.  With this added grain and detail, I feel my eyes searching, looking at the metal details.
