Metal and autumn

I am coming back to this image since I day I shot it. It was during the Worldwide Photo Walk in the spill way between Lake MacBride and Coralville Lake. I saw this metal structure and knew I want to work with it, there is a photograph here somewhere. The wide-angle view was plain boring. I tried the middle view and close up. Vertical and horizontal. Higher and lower point of view.
Ultimately, I settled down with this image. The advantage of vertical frame is that it shows more of the fall foliage. It gives more color and shows the reflection in the lake. It is still an abstract image, but let’s you look and figure out what it is. The delicate fall colors contrast nicely with the raw texture of the metal structure.
