I stand at the door to knock
E'en tho' there is no lock...
Who dares to open it wide,
For a skunk may live inside:)

I did this self portrait at 6:00 PM I wanted the old door of the outhouse to be the focal point of attention and it was a challenge to stand right in the center ....I achieved it better by turning my back. Here are the settings I used on my camera.

Focal length 55 mm
Exposure time 1/80 sec.
ISO Speed, ISO- 640
Exposure program manual
Camera on tripod...
10 second self-timer

    This has a lovely vintage look. Very nicely centered and a great entry! Just about all of the old outhouses have disappeared from the landscape it seems, which makes this a fairly rare capture, too..

    Thank you all for your kind response...I found it more difficult than I thought it would be to shoot this image dead center as the old outhouse in reality leans to the side which made it even more of a challenge. I love these challenges that
    JPG offers us...They are so much fun and we learn from them...

    The leaning outhouse really gives this one a cool perspective, and I can see why it would have been difficult to get it captured just right!! Wel done!
