About the Image(s)

I called this ‘Closed’. I’m not sure why I took it, I only have 1 shot of it, but I like its simplicity. There is no post processing except a bit of sharpening (clarity).

Canon Eos-R 50mm F4 1/1000 ISO 100

Terry, you have the ability to see things in a different way than I do. I love the simplicity of this photo. Very nice.   Posted: 11/01/2019 19:11:48

Like it, always attracted to old doors, door knockers and locks. I have a collection of images on this subject will post some time in the future.   Posted: 11/02/2019 23:06:54

Great composition! I love how you kept to the Rule of Thirds and have complementary colors and leading lines...checked all the boxes! The shadow falling across adds additional dimension.

I would be tempted to take the blues down a bit to make the blue richer (add more black?). The blue looks a bit overly bright on my screen.

Excellent example of a great subject that keeps you engaged. My eyes keep going up and down looking for a place to rest.   Posted: 11/03/2019 14:36:55

A perfect picture. I like the shadow and the blue color in particular.

I agreed with Brenda that a richer blue may draw more attention and well separate the blue door and the yellow locks. If you like, maybe you can just further increase the clarity (details) of the locks, keeping the door as is.

The composition is perfect, nothing more to comment. ... Well, just to mention, I am trying to move away form 1/3 whenever possible nowadays, as it has tied me too much on my imagination. For this case, maybe it is a candidate to experiment a bit. The door open in the middle, so put the line in the middle, maybe also an option? :)

Again cheers for another nice picture.   Posted: 11/04/2019 10:18:00

I like these photos that grab our attention and see them as an opportunity for further personal reflection.

This one is a great study of texture and decay.

If it were my photo I might be tempted to add more contrast or increase the dark tones, though also tend to overdo that type of edit at times so perhaps not.
