An interesting and so very well observed composition. One which one could sit back and think of about the type of people who have ventured in and out of this doorway over the years...

A nice mix of invitation and deterrence. Who's lurking in those shadows?

The 'thirds' work well, Alan, the archway fairly yanks you through the image. An interesting magenta colour cast which works well with the greens.

Like the way you have partially framed the door way with the tree Alan, which then as Dave so aptley put 'fair yanks you through the image' great captureSmile

The foliage almost mirrors itself. A calm composition, beautifully proportioned.

Very well constructed, ticks all the boxes. Si.

The shadows and light on the secondary arch and some of the stonework has a distinctly purplish tinge, Alan.

Very well observed. Clever composition, like the way the tree in the foreground echoes the arch of the porch. Beautiful muted colours in the stonework, sensitively handled.
Colin and Janet also approve.
18 Sep 2013 5:45PM
Right. I thought you meant a colour cast affecting the whole image. That stone does sometimes look slightly pink in certain light, though for some reason it's a little more pronounced here, probably as a result of my processing.

Hi Linda. If Colin and the lovely Janet are happy, then I'm happy too Smile
Like the mystery of the composition.. Nicely muted toned colour range

Intriguing composition, leading the viewer on to the secret garden on the other side????

Nicely done sir.

I like this image Alan, strong composition with the framing by the tree and arch on the third, inviting one through to the intrigue of what lies beyond.

Hi Alan been a while since I've commented on images and seeing this I thought I had to say I really like the colour changes of the stone. From the natural hue's to the age weathered colours and the lichens. As was said earlier it also makes you ask were does this door lead ...... what's round the corner.

Cheers Erik. Pleased that you like it. If you knew what was round the corner, you'd laugh. So I'm not telling Grin

Lovely textures and tones, I like the contrast between the two door frames.
An inviting and soothing image.
