Very powerful door given a number makes me wonder what the 1 to 7 look like and wonder if they are as grand.   Posted: 11/09/2023 14:41:37

Two for the price of one, by the looks of it. The main door to the building then a door to the 'veranda' area above the door.
I like the symmetry but also the inclusion of the main and the bikes.   Posted: 11/10/2023 06:21:32

I really love the way the gas pipes form a nice frame for the whole door/door/window unit. Great content for this month. My only suggestions are very minor, but I would have removed the video camera and the reflection of the fluorescent lights in the top right window pane using some of the tools in Lightroom. I tried playing around with the beta version of PS in order to see if generative fill would complete the bicycle tires. I finally got it to work but it didn't add much to the photo. It was a good test for generative fill which I'm sure we will start using more and more in the future.   Posted: 11/10/2023 18:09:16

Hi Paul, thank you for your comments, I agree with the reflection and the camera, I should give images a closer going over before posting, the original does have the bicycle tires intact but lost when had to correct the perspective, how many times do you say I wish I had left more space around image when buildings are involved.   Posted: 11/25/2023 22:14:24

Nice even tones and great symmetry in the frame. The man and bikes add human interest. Where was the photo taken?   Posted: 11/12/2023 15:53:45

Great color and contrast. Leaving the man in the image adds scale. I also would have removed the camera.
