I stumbled across this barn door close to my in-laws house while visiting in Belgium. Really just loved the texture and how is was ajar. The faded red colour also attracted me. Something about this place just spoke time and history. The red door

I like this kind of thing very much, Mark, and this is a good one. Like many of your images however, I think it would gain quite considerably from being presented on a different colour background. It's something that's ignored by many, which I find difficult to understand, as presentation is so important, and can often transform an image, enriching colours or even in some cases profoundly affecting the mood. Some are enhanced by being presented on white, others on grey, others ( such as this one ) on black. Although the image itself is a strong one.... and I appreciate your comment about the faded colour.... presenting it on this pale blue background simply makes it look washed out, and does it no favours at all!

Interesting why the owner should paint the door a bright red????

but I think I would be a little more concerned about what looks like asbestos in the walls WinkGrinGrinGrin

well recorded...I find that the black bg works well in most situations Smile

Excellent advice and I freely admit to being guilty on the ignoring the background. Indeed Alan, a picture can be "technically" correct but the background can elevate it or bring it down. As always your insight is appreciated!
