A fine composition which contains lots of potential abstracts. In the style of Mick (mikbee) I would have gone in close on the lock, chain and handles.

Light, detail, lines, textures... Smile
I think I agree with bobsblues, my instinct would be to straighten. But the angle does combine with the padlock to give a forbidding effect.

Doors and locks make fascinating subjects and this is no exception. Here there are many fine and fascinating details: the textures of the door itself and its partial coating of flaking paint, the decorated grille which is an embellishment rather than a security measure, the shadow cast on the door by the chain, the qualities of the materials (iron, brass, steel, painted glass I think) and of course the presence of not one but two locks.

And I am sure that if Mick were around he would agree with me that you deserve at the very least honorary membership of the R.A.S. Smile

Regards
Bill

Thank you for the encouraging words and for the admittance to the R.A.S. I hope Mick's health is improving.
Is there any news about him?
