Stylish as always. The vignetting adds to the atmosphere of this one. Good work indeed. Nick.

Nice change to your normal stuff Paul. This works very well, and is quite an atmospheric shot. I like the bright light in the doorway and the way it burns into the figure a little.

I love it. Strangely unsettling but all the more impressive because of that.

Beautiful tonal quality and an almost voyeuristic feel to it. Great work indeed.

Thanks All - much appreciated.

Nic - I was shortlisted from the first round for the Travel theme but haven't heard the results for Round 2 yet. The theme for this one was On My Doorstep.
Have no idea if it will float their boat but I like it anyway. Smile

cheers, Paul

Good luck Smile Let me know how you get on...UK mags are about 3 months out of date before we get to see them here. Interested to see you using the 10-20mm lens for something other than landscapes...I've really started paying attention to that now that I'm trying to justify buying one!

Rumour has it that Paul only has a 10-20 mm lens Smile

I can tell you that this wasn't taken with a 10mm lens!

Love the over all feeling of isolation and hope.
The long hallway really accentuates the effect you were going for.
A true work of art!!

I wish I hadn't seen this! I too entered the 2nd round of the Practical Photography comp, but my images are nowhere near as good as this. This is a superb shot - atmospheric and really captivating. Good luck.
