From the same location to my previous posting
This is a close up view of a weathered door that has seen the better life in Kuqa Uighur old quarter. I was drawn to this poorly maintained, neglected door and a very strong morning sun shining, obligingly at the correct angle to emphasize these textures made me think it was worth a shot. I simply loved the contrast between the padlock and the vibrant peeling blue paint reflecting the character and history to this door, I suppose it possesses a certain rustic appeal that I found enchanting, a charm of this old medieval dusty town.
I wonder what stories this door could tell...

hai realizzato un ottimo close up facendo risaltare al meglio il soggetto scelto.
Vecchia pittura ormai scrostata che conferisce un particolare effetto all'immagine,

A rather beautiful combination of light and shadow, and some very rich colour. You certainly did catch the sun at an excellent angle to highlight these things and the texture of the wood, with its various engravings - who knows what stories they might tell. A very pleasing composition and good exposure which reveals some very subtle highlights on the metal ring.

Nice detailed picture, not spectacular but absolutely nice.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Composition and presentation are lovely.
Very well done, TFS.

Bom dia Abmdsudi
Magnificent picture. Besides the beauty it has a meaning, at least for me.
Original and creative idea and a marvelous capture. Congratulations. TFS

Hi Abmdsudi ...
The textures and color are amazing,
I'm surprised something old and has
that beautiful sight deteriorated.
I like the contrast of the composition.

You've found a great detail and you present it in a very good way. Your framing is perfectly balanced to bring the padlock out.
Wonderful textures too.
I think I would have enhanced the light and played with levels to get a brigter picture so that the nervures are more apparent. I try a WS to illustrate my vision. Hope you don't mind.

I think many of us will agree about the beauty of the texture of the wood and its faded paint. By including the padlock and the round irons you have achieved a very attractive composition.

adores (30805) 2011-06-22 18:14
An excellent detail here! the textures, the blue colour on the wood, the iron rings - it's a simple but also great detail that you captured really well. The light was perfect that moment and the sharpness is really good to show the textures.

Good morning Abmdsudi,
Excellent details and clarity. Colours are very good and I like your light management. It's a good idea not to centre the door lock so that you've got a fabulous composition. Very nice work indeed.

All it takes is a crowbar and a little leverage to open this up. But what I love about this photo is the blue markings...old paint..and rough worn wood on the door. Very nice.
sacimar (25969) 2011-06-23 7:05
I like this kind of compositions, playing with colors and textures, it's a simple image buy very beautiful, well seen with an excellent result, as you say this door could tell hundreds of stories,
geoant68 (2861) 2011-06-23 7:49
the view of the closed wooden door is perfect with the padlock to be placed perfect in the image.The paint of the door, as its ravages of time, is well presented.
ManuMay (33975) 2011-06-23 8:51
Absolutely great, fully detailed, great colours and textures...very well conceived and realized...
rodgerg (55767) 2011-06-23 10:13
Excellent close up to this old door. The old blue color is very well collected and give a plesanat athmospher of nostalgy to the view. Beautiful play of she well collected too. An excellent idea for an image very creative.

A well composed image with good placement of the lock in the frame and a fine texture and colour study here.* Sharp and clear image

a superb close-up with graphic details and very nice details, it is like an abstract work of art, beautiful shot, I like it! Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!
Ricx (13489) 2011-06-23 23:18

I don't know if I am too pessimistic but here I see a gas mask... and it gives me the blues... I must have read too many reports from Fukushima... The framing is very well done, with a strong contrast in textures between the door and the padlock. I love the vibrant blue hues and the details on the wood. A striking and minimalist effect that shines, specially within the white framing.
BluSimo (9392) 2011-06-26 3:38
it's a magnificent abstraction within which I read the East, the Time, the prison. dark tones that you have chosen are a lot interesting and mysterious, they sink the colors in the suggestion and show and hide in the same moment. my compliments.
emilbo (21465) 2011-06-26 6:26
Excellente composition rapprochée et belle combinaison de couleurs sur cette façade couverte de graffitis. Beau contraste entre le vieux fer et le mur défraichi. belle observation de ta part et beau travail.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne semaine,
Waylim (23310) 2011-06-26 14:06
Very different shot from you, a nice close up study of the rustic door and a very interesting door lock. I like the strong contrast here and really great details and texture of the wooden door and the fading paint and some carving of letters. the main subject, the lock is nicely postion off center to the left for a good composition.
adramad (30899) 2011-06-26 14:49
That stunning composition ...! in the foreground, on the lock and the door, the effect achieved with the textures of wood and its color is an unusual quality and beauty, the iron rings and the lock also create a nice effect with the projection of its shadows. A good sight picture and better made. Congratulations.
Good start of week.
delpeoples (48582) 2011-06-27 6:14
This is lovely, and a very difficult subject for your Gallery. It is something we might see from Marietom or some of the French photographers here on TE. Excellent close-up, great exposition and saturation. The textures are magnificent. Congratulations and I wish you a lovely week.
Juntas (7958) 2011-06-28 2:27
Hi Abmdsudi. Very beautiful detail of this lock and door. Composition is well balanced, sharpness of details is great and color saturation is perfect. Great light, great work.
Have a nice day.
Nard (6915) 2011-06-28 10:43
Nice close up of thos door. I like the excellent exposure and sharpness, how we can feel the texture of the wood, how the blue is merging with the clear brown with some touch of yellow. The black lockpad stands well out the background and is well positionned with a large place on the right. A simple but well done picture.
jafadabret (56497) 2011-06-30 23:07
J'aime ce plan serré sur cette porte et son système de fermeture. Le rendu des textures est parfait et le bleu donne beaucoup de charme à la photo.
Atousa (7123) 2011-07-06 8:32
A charming texture indeed!.. the padlock is well placed in the framing n the details n colors are eye catching.. a lovely simplicity.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
jmdias (48333) 2011-07-23 16:09
this door looks like and abstract-expressionist art. very beautiful the texture of the wood, this blue almost gone and the lock at side. nice job. TFS
papagolf21 (79546) 2012-03-20 11:59
J'aime ce genre de composition, qui fait parler l'image, et fait appel à l'imagination. Tous les éléments photographiques sont présents pour évoquer le temps qui passe et les vicissitudes de ce portail à deux vantaux.
Il y a de la poésie dans cette création.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-11-02 16:31
amazing how old things always attract, the beautiful grain on the wood and the rusty lock give a beautiful composition!!
my compliments to your work, always great to see your images!!
