Dad in front of James Turrell's "Catso, Red", taken at the Mattress Factory installation museum in Pittsburgh, PA.

Since it was hand-held at high ISO, there's a lot of noise reduction done in the post-processing. Otherwise, just cropping and some distortion adjustment.

What I like about the photo is how it challenges our perception of dimensionality. The figure in the foreground is a 3D object silhouetted to look 2D. The red cube is light projected on a 2D surface and made to look 3D.

The only critique I can give is the lighting in the top left hand corner and down the left side. The reflection of light there is a little distracting, but great shot. - 7

seems to me that the red is a minor part of this photo
