Just a Door



And that's just it, there is nothing special about it, but of the pictures I'm currently working on it has an awful attraction.

There is something about a simple shape.

Re: Just a Door

It may be "just a door" and the shape is very pleasing however to me the attraction of the scene is the feeling of intimacy given by the composition.

Re: Just a Door

Thanks Iain

I suppose it is that 'window onto the world' shape/composition.

Well it is no secret - 10 shots hdr using Photomatix, then twiddle the controls till it feels right.

And my great secret for Photomatix - make sure you've got a good exposure not only for the highlights/shadows (the extremes) but also for all the shades in between.
