Good thinking to open that door just the right amount to take through once we have stopped to look at the door.

I would never put it better than Alan, Bill. Superb work!
Leaves and flowers come to my mind when I saw this Bill, the door hinge been the leaves while the window been the flowers, I wonder if that is how you saw it. Or maybe it's time for my madication . Good mono well spotted.

Alan has certainly hit the nail on the head with his comment. This is an outstanding composition of elements.

Good one Bill,and it has made me think that I have been neglecting my doors recently.
I must put that to rights soon and start getting some pics.
And it beggars belief the money they want nowadays for these rubbish PVC doors I think !!

I like the alien hand analogy, very secretive and sinister. Wonderful composition, Bill.

A very nice image and really nice in B & W.

I keep coming back to this, Bill. It's just a lovely image.
Magical monochrome Bill, like some bestial hand clawing it's way back into the crypt.

Worth a Wee Tree methinks.

I've just learnt a new word - chantry. Excellent. It's also a good word for Scrabble. 7 letters, c, h, y...mmm.

Great shot you've got here, Bill, with that composition and the varying degrees of light and shadow.

Lovely atmospheric image. Well composed and exposed work. Mono conversion just finishes it off.
