Gateway to the West

Apparently this is the tallest arch in the world and the tallest man-made monument in the United States! 630 ft (190 meters) tall. Those black rectangles are windows that you can peek out of once you’re at the top.

Gateway to the West – ProjectEdit365 – 08 June

The original looked good in color, but I love how the steel lends itself to black and white. I increased the clarity and decreased the contrast. I played with the Tone Curve sliders tonight to get the desired look. I confess, I do not understand Tone Curve and so I rarely use it. I need to study up!

I'm a photographer and homeschooler Dream = travel blogger. We move around every couple of years. That's fine, I love seeing different parts of our great country and the world. Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.
