It looks mysterious, but because of the dark overtones I have a difficult time gaining a perspective on exactly what the door looks like or how it's oriented. May be due to my aging eyes or dim screen. Or was it aging screen and dim eyes.. hmmm.

I like the colors and the soft lighting - but I, like everyone else, am having trouble seeing what it is, because it' so dark.

The "door" is open slightly exposing the pendulum of my Sessions banjo clock. The photo was taken late in the afternoon with the D70. Using a70-300mm lens,a tripod mount,and f22 aperture and NR turned on, it was about a 15sec exposure. Then equally long for the camera to process the shot with the noise reduction feature. The glass of the door is reverse painted with beautiful gold leaf and dark green. Easily my favorite clock.

I love the shot because it hasmystery and majic about it and is always asking the question "what is behind the door?"

Well done,

The composition is quite good. As for "mystery," I think this is good if it's what was intended.
