Te gusta la aventura Ryan? :D Se ve peligrosa el agua.

Saludos!! Marah.

Good capture and details, the red paint looks like blood, huh... :) I love photos of things that no one else would think of being worth to be photographed (this tunnel certainly is). Did you correct the lines? The walls look somehow diagonally, but this could also be a result of the shadow. Cheers, Xenia

Sí, Marah. Eres impresionada con mi coraje? :D Saludos!

Thanks Xenia. For some reason I just like the light from the far side. The view is slightly down, so the walls tilt in. I didn't like aligning with the left side or right side, so I tried just to keep the top of the tunnel level, although the camera itself is not level. Cheers!

Ah, you're someone who always sees the light at the end of the tunnel. :) Good choice to keep the top of the tunnel! Often it's enough to have one straight line to lead the eye and stabilize a picture, and I can't count the number of photos I tried to align and did in fact distort everything.

After all, the only reason to go through a tunnel is to see what is at the other end. :) The alignment isn't perfect, but I'm not entirely convinced that the tunnel itself is level. But I think it also gives the sense of peering around the corner to see what is inside.

Thanks Nicolas. Eventually the paint will disappear. The question is, how long will it be before someone else with a can of paint climbs down to add more?
