The Processional Doors to St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral in Melbourne. These allow the main wooden doors to remain open and welcoming, and also provide protection from the weather and the city noise.

The panel tells the story of St Paul at the moment when he is binded by light on the road to Damascus; traditional iconographic symbols of the four Gospel writers, drawn from the vision of
Ezekiel can be seen - the Lion (St Mark), the Eagle (St John), the Ox (St Luke) and the man (Matthew).

Many thanks, as always, for your time and comments, or for just coming in to look.

Good line out type image where the eye is immediately drawn to the stained glass window, but I also like the way you've captured the glass colours reflecting on the shiny floor......Good impressive piece of work this, my only criticism of it being that if it were mine, I might be inclined to remove the EXIT signs on either side of the image, just an idea of course......Well done....

Stunning Dave. A superb image, but I sort of agree with Ade about the signs. You could always keep them and use them later.... Smile

Stunning doors, Dave, wonderful colours and the reflections on the floor make it look like water. Do agree with Ade, though, I would have removed the EXIT signs. Carol

Terrific image Dave, and to be honest the eye is drawn so well to the window I didn't even notice the exit signs... Wonderful.

I agree with Ade, including the removal of the exit signs, but this is a brilliant capture regardless.

Failed again Sad. Many thanks for the feedback. I thought quite a bit about the 'exit' signs whilst cleaning up some stray bits of light, and decided I would leave them as they were part of the symmetry and added a slightly different dimension on the otherwise dark edges. v2 is the amended version.

A really stunning image, with or without the Exit signs which like Carole I have to say I completely missed as I was so taken by the light, colours and lead-in. I don't really think the signs are a problem just reality and sometimes toggers forget that!

Super image Dave... I too like the way the stained glass has been reflected on the floor, which adds another dimension.
The exit lines could have added some dark humour!... Very well done either wayWink
