Default Old Door

I really find the old rusted doors, windows and locks a really good subject. This one is one of my favorites. Any comments on this photo ?

A lot of very interesting textures, and there is a hint of mystery as to what is behind the door. Nice work.

The door definitely has a lot of character. In terms of feedback, I would like to see less of the wall (which has plenty of character as well) which to me is competing with the door for attention. Perhaps a tighter crop of the door would be better.

Thanks for your comments. Seriously I wouldn't like to know whats behind that door. ) I have been passing the last 5-6 years going to work from this place and it has always been like this. )

Jehan thanks for your constructive feedback. In my point of view I really liked the fact that there is this competition that you refer to. It can be as well a game to the viewers attention to decide the point of focus.

I pretty sure that this in terms of photography maybe wrong but I think our perspective in viewing photos today (in the era of the post-processing) has changed a lot since the last update on the basics of photography.

I found the upper left to be a bit distracting. I also increased saturation and sharpness. It's not better than your fine original---just different.

By Greek standards it looks like a recent installation.

Yes Streets. Sharpness make it a bit different ) Its always nice to see how other see these little difference that can make a frame look somehow different.
