Spotted in Appleby in Cumbria. The archway is the entrance to a group of picturesque Almshouses.
An image which could lead to many literature pathways
A great photographic idea that plays with the idea of foreground/background, and actually mixes architectural styles to convey a sense of deepening mystery: What is this red door? The project might have benefited from some simple compositional changes. Moving the shooting angle slightly to the left might have avoided placing too much emphasis on the fountain (showing half would have sufficed) and the bit of greenery, open sky, that take the eye away. Shooting from this angle might also have highlighted the upper right side of the first door (the escutcheon being of major interest). Cropping a bit below the steps and showing more of the arch might also have helped. I really like the interplay between the wood of the doors and the brick/stones combination of the buildings. Congratulations, at any rate, for your very keen photographic eye. Cheers,
Interesting comments from Paul, Ken: it always easy to see how the image might be improved when sitting in the comfort of one's home and viewing the shot on screen later.
I do this all the time.
Whether it would have possible to do what he suggests only you might know, but having said that, I find the composition as it is very satisfactory.
Very nicely composed, ken.
All very interesting; as was the location.
A nicely framed shot, Ken...like that fountain
