RED DOOR by Alastair Cochrane

February 2021 - RED DOOR

About the Image(s)

Not many industrial buildings here and none of architectural merit however this older building has its own attraction particularly with the high level red door. Although I've never seen the door in use it looks better maintained than the rest of the structure. Cropped off some extraneous parts and did some brightness/contrast adjustments.

I find it interesting that in today's world these buildings still exist and take up land space where more modern buildings could be accomplishing more. Nice image   Posted: 02/08/2021 13:32:48

I love these kinds of photos, the texture, lines, and shapes are all there. Moreover the ambiguity of the door/window. Thank you for sharing   Posted: 02/08/2021 23:49:10

I like the lines and simplistic colours. The red door sets this image off perfectly. Great seeing.   Posted: 02/13/2021 08:45:16

The red door is the highlight of this excellent composition.

I just want to mention that aside from the red door, this is a great monochrome composition as well. I converted it to monochrome, playing with the individual color conversions. Here is one possible outcome.   Posted: 02/13/2021 14:44:03

Stephen, I have already done a monochrome version but included a bit more sky that I made more contrasty which is ok but I still like the red door.

The red door makes the image, contrasted with the gray barn and blue sky. The minimalistic composition allows the viewer to be fully immersed in the forms, shadows and textures.   Posted: 02/24/2021 14:36:38

A perfect composition !!! Love the geometric modules and soft texture ------ the red door is just perfectly placed.   Posted: 02/24/2021 18:11:49
