The same night I tried my 24mm TS-E on the most important historical monument of Follonica, the cast iron Pronaos of the main church ( https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=341694 ), I also shot the second (and only other) monument of the town: the cast iron gate of the ex-Ilva area. By the way, Ilva is the name of the steel plant (now closed) that manufactured both the monuments.
To tell you the truth I didn't like this shot very much. But I've shown it, among others, in an Italian forum and with my surprise I received lots of positive feedbacks. So, here it is:

The little palm tree kills it for me, though I like everything else, color and comp.

Well... at least it partially hides the ugly street behind! ;)

Nice shot, I have to agree about the potted palm though.

Thanks for the visit.
For the palm, unfortunately I can not remove it. :rolleyes:

By the way, I see it now, I've attached the "wrong" image: in the new version I cropped a narrow strip on the right side, in order to perfectly center the gate and to remove the dark side of the building.
