The little narrow lanes of Ciutadella are beautiful and quaint. Some psrts are just a little scruffy but, when I followed this little lady down the narrow street and spotted this very smart doorway, I thought it deserved a photograph.
This picture was another one taken during a wonderful and very instructive photographic holiday with Philip Dunn.
Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

I love this for the yellow wall and the shapes. Photographers are good at spotting interesting opportunities in 'doors and windows' - amazing how interesting they can be. You just need a small child peering through one of the windows in the door and it would be in my favourites!!
Best wishes, Ann

Very powerful echoes of Mondrian here!
A strong composition with the horizontal and vertical lines conforming neatly to the rule of thirds.
The limited palette of colours here – browns, oranges and whites, makes for a satisfying image.
The upper/side natural lighting has thrown some interesting small shadows and the texture of the wall surface is well brought out.
As sharp and crisp as ever with your photographs.

there's something about this photo, and i'm not even sure exactly what it is :)
guess its the attractiveness of the frames, the textures, the sharpness and exposure.
all in all a great looking door.

Welcome back dear John
I hope your tussle with the ambo chasers went well. You been missed. Couldn't resist this sunny, characteristic shot of Spain. Doorways and windows make such great subjects. Good cropping here, lovely rich (and very natural) colours and superb sharpness. Good one!
Have a lovely day
