Fun Photo Challenge #3 - Post a Door (or Doorway) 09/06/2013
Taken in Columbia State Historic Park, a California Gold Rush town from the 1850's, and not as sinister as it might seem at first sight-- despite the reflection of the man with the eye-patch (not me). I wish I'd got a little more of eye-patch guy, but that's life!
Thanks for the thread

Nice processing, but I have to say, the railings are making me nuts. I would have tried to go even wider to get the full railings in on both sides, as well as the base of the metal stoops (down to the sidewalk), and then worked with cropping for the right balance. Or, I would have done each door with its own stoop in portrait orientation....The one on the right would be quite interesting as you would have some offset if you took it head on with the whole stoop in the photo (if you could; I would imagine there might be some not so photogenic stuff in the way on either side of both of these doors...)
I know what you mean, Janet. I don't recall specifically, but I do remember thinking that there should be another perspective that minimizes the railings, but this was the best I could pull from the scene. Maybe on another day I might see things differently here. . . [shrugl] Thanks for the feedback [g].

A bit of John Ford style. I was hoping someone would try that.
Thanks, this thread has some wonderful pictures. The building was destroyed by fire, not yet demolished.
Thanks for looking
The bright color is an attention getter. But, the two door locks are interesting.
I like the shadows and light in the 1st one.
I like the B&W treatment.
I enjoyed the green door and the close up showing the detail of the shield.
Passed by these doors while wandering around Cobh, Ireland last year.
Well, it just so happens I have a bunch of recent doorway-like photos from a recent cruise to Barbados and Puerto Rico right here:
I love photographing doors, this is one of my favourite shots; it's an abandoned factory in Nottingham where I live. I call it 'last exit'.
