Location: St Helena Island National Park (penal colony 1867-1932), Queensland, Australia. Before I bought my first DSLR I had a little point & shoot camera, which served me well on my first trip to Australia. Among many adventures on that trip, I enjoyed a special outing to this island park that was once a penal colony, an event planned by my sister’s camera club. Best of all, we had special permission to enter parts of the ruins that are restricted. As sunset approached, I envisioned an image of the sun setting through a barred window. I staked out my spot, set up my tripod and waited, and this was the result. Post-processing: split processing in Adobe Camera Raw plus touch-ups in Topaz Adjust and Detail.
