What a nice sight of this little chair against the old blue door - I took this photo on route to one of the most beautiful sights on earth - this region of Argentina is full of surprises.
We stayed in the primitive town of Vinchina for one night & this is where I took the photo - the town itself had very little to offer - but did have Wi-Fi. [ finding food was a bit of a problem ]
En-route we passed through the town of Villa Union & were surprised to see two very nice resort style hotels - most folk that visit this region stay at these resorts where you are sure of comfort & a good meal - as we had an early start the following day we decided to travel on another 80 klm's to get a bit closer to the mountains & Vinchina.
Early the following day we headed off with our pre-booked tour guide to see one of the major attractions in the region - a place called '' Laguna Brava '' one has to travel around 200 klm's from Villa Union to reach the lagoon.

this is a simple scene but you have turned it into a really special image. The dappled light and your accomplished execution here make this so attractive and appealing. Irresistible and beautiful imagery!
Enjoy your day - Brian.

A nicely framed composition of this delightful doorway. I like the vegetation creeping up the wall and the lovely play of light and shadow that creates a marvellous atmosphere. The chair adds a splash of contrasting colour and is a friendly invitation to sit back, relax and enjoy the quietness of the place. An excellent work.
Thanks for sharing.

Your series on doors is quite interesting. I like this one because the shadows created by the presence of a tree. Great composition.
Very nice picture.

what a lovely scene.
It has kind of "melancholic" mood.You had a good eye for this scene and noticed perfectly its uniqueness.Also the light is so delightful here and helps to create this unique atmosphere.Good work!

J'aime particulièrement cette porte dans ta collection surtout à cause de la chaise qui semble très hospitalière et le contraste du rouge sur le bleu.

A fine detailed photo, like it !

Very fince colors of this charming detail. I like the shadows and the calm mood. Well taken.

A wonderful composition, which is an ideal subject for playback on an oil painting.
I love that chair front door, as if waiting for the owner, the perfect cushion adds a touch of color, beautiful shadows and highlights in the image.
Beautiful work, well done, I love it.
Have a nice weekend.

Beautifully presented blue door in a stone wall. Red chair in a strong accent color lead. Wonderful colors and perfect sharpness.
MJR (3360) 2012-09-08 15:44
You clearly have a predeliction for doors !
A fascinating and virtually limitless subject which could keep you busy for years !
I like this one especially for the red chair, to compliment the blue of the door, and the dappled shade sets it all off. I can just imagine the lady of the house scurrying round doing her chores in the morning, ready to take her place on the chair for the heat of the day ! I have never been to Argentina, but seen doorways like this all over the various hot countries I have seen.
Soory it took me a while to get back to you, lovely to hear from you.. I recollect Gus saying you are English, or one step removed, so you might enjoy scooting aroud my gallery from time to time !
Look fwd to seeing more of your work, esp when Gus coughs up for the new DSLR !!

Vos photos de portes sont particulièrement intéressantes et bien présentées. Celle-ci est plus colorée et présente une belle lumière, mais elles sont toutes belles.

Your idea for the series of these little dorrways is working really well. Even though its a series of similar things, all of your captures have their own unique little breath of life in them, as shown here so well by the cute red chair against the blue door. Lovely composition, and a most enjoyable series.

a very nice compostion with very blu door
Flavia (10352) 2012-09-12 8:50
I have a waek for windows and doors, so your series of old doors are a treat to my eyes. I like specially this one, as the warm light over the blue door creating nice shadows over it adds to the shot. The empty chair with red contrasting cushon is an invitation to join the scene.
papagolf21 (87466) 2012-09-16 1:27
Je me permet de faire une halte sur cette très belle composition.
L'image s'apparente à une peinture. Vous avez su à travers cette réalisation donner une âme particulière. Il y a une sorte de poésie qui s'exprime à travers cette photo.
jacquest (18833) 2012-09-16 5:39
Thank you for the visit on my photo.
Doors always captivates me, probably because of the mystery of what lies behind. This is a very nice composition with a beautiful play of light and shadow. The chair makes an excellent contrast and an invite to relax.

Hello Dawn how are you?
I really like this picture, because looks so nostalgic special the chair, having the sensation of somebody was sitting there, admiring the sunshine or the people passing by. I like the colors, the branches, the ligth and shadows.
This picture have a very nice composition.
robmal (1958) 2012-09-18 1:49
fantastic vertical shot, colors, sharpness, composition,light and shadows are perfect, all yours doors of time are excellent, congratulations.
adores (38709) 2012-09-20 9:28
A simple detail with beautiful colours that gave you a very good composition. I like the effect of the sunlight that passes through the branches. Very well seen!
SnapRJW (31617) 2012-10-05 8:11
Hello Dawn - You have assembled a lovely series on a variety of rustic-looking doors. Each has it's appeal but this one works so well with the red-cushioned chair. I love the colour splash against the door and the lovely play of shadows across the façade. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for your kind comments on my work. Warm regards rosemary
tyro (20978) 2012-10-06 8:30
As with all beautiful photographs, the main feature, in my opinion at least, is excellent lighting and you have certainly achieved that with this one.
The play of the light and the shade from an overhanging tree have the most beautiful effect on this bright blue door and its surrounding stonework, bringing out all the wonderful textures of paint and masonry. The juxtaposition of the bright red seat cushion complements the image perfectly.
Fabulous vibrant colours, lovely light, perfect exposure and exquisite detail and sharpness.
CanmoreKevin (2111) 2012-10-06 9:41
There are so many door pictures on TE, but yours really stand out. I like that you have often included a bit of other detail that makes a complete story. Here I can actually imagine that this chair is used and who that person might be. Love the contrast between the red and the blue. Nicely done.
mvdisco (17778) 2012-10-07 21:21
A beautiful presentation and composition of this lovely chair and blue door,
Excellent point of view and great détails,
Beautiful tone of colors and contrast and light with the shadow..
all my compliments,
josepmarin (57833) 2012-10-14 6:31
I like this minimalist composition, in which the chair in front of the blue door plays a fantastic graphical role, while an effective game of light and shades increases the beauty of the ensemble.
It is necessary to have a good eye for to see a nice photo in these simple elements, and you have it.
It is a good work.
jmdias (57061) 2012-10-18 7:05
I ever think is a bench of a empty chair like an alive personage. here the chair looks a lady waiting the sun. nice details of the door perfect framing, pov and light.
maloutim (9637) 2012-10-29 3:00
This is a very cheerful "Door of time" ! Great effect given by the play of sunlight and shadow, the contrast between the bright, blue door and the flowery red cushion, which looks so inviting ! Even with the empty seat, one imagines the bliss of a rest on that chair.
Have a good day.
SWEETFREEDOM (22966) 2012-10-31 1:42
very good composition, nice contrast of colors, light and sharpness.
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-11-01 1:39
A timeless picture, with a great light management

and with a great composition.

Hi DAWN Dear
Very beautiful and compelling view of an old wooden door. I like it, like Iran. Good exposure with excellent framing. Hello my friend, well done.
Thanks for visiting and your nice message.
We here in the city of Gorgan, the weather is a little cooler.
CLODO (30836) 2012-11-11 1:03
You seem to appreciate the doors (so many in yoir gallery!). I like the mood of this one, with the chairs in front of it, and the light coming through the leaves, it has a sense of quietness, holidays in a remote country, where the time is stopped.
Have a nice Sunday
Didi (57740) 2012-11-23 15:56
Nice game between shades and lights and interesting tight composition.
nikkitta (15334) 2013-04-23 13:14
What a colorful door you discover, really well composed and framed by the fr¿green vegetation
Congrats and saludos desde Buenos Aires
ikeharel (59615) 2013-11-27 2:45
fabulous red and white, blue and some green. Nicely composed the simple entrance, and with good sharp details,
Mingling shades with light also contributed a fine ambiance through the lovely image.
