I took this shot of an abandoned birdhouse right around sunset. I had a few others that I had taken about 15 minutes earlier, but I liked the effect the sunset had on the contrast of this photo better.

Tip: Always try to keep in mind the Rule of Thirds when you take a photo. Split the image that you see in a grid of 9 squares (3x3). Try to keep that grid in mind as you manipulate where you want the subject(s) to be placed within your shot. If you notice, on this photo, I have the birdhouse in the right 2/3rd of the picture and the barbed-wire fence is in the bottom third. Keeping the Rule of Thirds in mind helps make your photos more interesting and can also frame your subjects.
