Number 15. in my series of old doors from Argentina - there is so much detail here in this image especially with the old building slowing losing its render.
I wish you a happy & grand day.

Kia ora Dawn,
Another great door. This is a great image. The collapsing plaster exposing the mudbrick beneath, The worn paintwork, detail in the stones - it has a character of its own. Cheers, Neil

A very well observed view. It is just an old door, but you have seen the harmony between the colours and all the details of dispair and neglect that that altogether provide a very good and artistic picture.
Merry Christmas to you too!

A terrific, well composed photo of this old door. The earthy colours in the wall and the bottom of the door match well with the weathered timbers. Very nice. If only the door could speak!
Many thanks for the Christmas wishes. I wish the same for you and your family.

Encore une image très appréciée. Vous avez une âme de poète pour présenter de telles compositions.
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance qui se dégage de cette composition.
Une réussite, une fois encore.

What a beautiful image with so much character. Incredible neglect. Do people still pass through those doors? So much detail seen once one starts looking: the small plants, the graffiti, shapes, textures, lines and patterns ... and, of course, the wonderful colours, all in very good composition. Very well done.
snunney (88383) 2012-12-09 1:39
I like this composition very much indeed. It is well framed and nicely lit. What strikes most though is the textures in wall and door and the nuances of tone that are so well rendered here. I wish you a pleasant Sunday.
SnapRJW (31625) 2012-12-09 1:40
Hello Dawn - Initially this looks like quite a simple shot, it's true that the composition is but the detail is quite fantastic. The contrasting textures all fall within a harmonious palette of colour. I love the scratched graffiti in the old plaster. Is that a marijuana leaf I see? Another small but special touch is the doorbell (?) which echoes precisely the shape of the door and arch. Well seen and managed. Warm regards rosemary

What a lot of differing textures you have captured in this quite small space! You have created a sense of the building casting off a disguising cloak and allowing the true beauty of its stonework to peep through. Who knows what other treasures could be hidden by the dilapidated door!
Excellent sharpness and good saturation.
Have a lovely Sunday,
CLODO (31606) 2012-12-09 2:04
I like the matter of the walls and decrepited wooden door, the soft hues of this shop giving a moody and nostalgic feelong.
bayno (18344) 2012-12-09 2:22
you know I like this theme, very beautiful colors, I also like the decadent appearance, excellent quality, I would have decentralized a little the door in the frame...

un particolare su cui pesa tutta la storia e la vita di questa abitazione, i segni sono ben evidenti e profondi.
Ancora una volta ci hai riportato, in modo semplice ed efficace, le sensazioni e le emozioni di questa terra.
jhm (142852) 2012-12-09 3:57
An old door middle of a brickwork, also the wood and stone combine to display some wonderful textures and colour tones
Sharpness and clarity are excellent, together also pleasant colors.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
Noel_Byrne (26567) 2012-12-09 8:28
Another beauty in your series, and as you say, the lack of the render on the building does give such ich texture, to compliment the rich colour and the history I imagine this place would have. If these doors in the series could talk, the stories they would tell! Beautiful image.
And thank you also Dawn for your kind comments on my gallery, it is very much appreciated. A very happy Christmas to you and yours too, all the best to you from Ireland!
All the best

Très intéressante cette vielle porte en bois avec les différentes textures de la façades, netteté et une lumière parfaite , tout comme le cadrage
ACL1978 (7511) 2012-12-09 8:54
You're right that there's an amazing amount of detail to take in here, Dawn - the texture is so rich in your shot, and the decay so vibrant! The old door itself is almost secondary here to the earthy brick and crumbling facade, running with rust and discoloration from above, and the scratchings of graffiti that are barely visible around the edges. Really wonderful spot, well captured.
holmertz (43707) 2012-12-09 10:32
Neglect and maybe poverty transformed to beauty. This is a very attractive photo of fine details and great, faded colours. It makes me think I can really feel the textures of the various materials. Very well seen.
Gigidusud (17615) 2012-12-09 14:32
A beautiful view of the door framed by old stone wall with nice colors.Well done!

Hi Dawn,a perfect pic to try and HDR,but is very very nice in the original version like your post,remember me the walls of Marrakech whit these colors,great capture and excellent quality,i like it!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-12-11 2:18
Light management and composition are very good
and I like monotone colors: it looks a little
bit work from Amsel (he made the movie posters
of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Indiana
Jones and the Last Crusade").
tedesse (25133) 2012-12-11 3:06
Wonderful old door a bit damaged. Good frame and composition, lovely colours and good sharpness. Very well done.

Ciao cara Dawn
Oooh this is fantastic. I love the textures and the earthy tones. The door is so characteristic and mysterious, which makes us wonder what lies beyond it. You have captured such a wonderful, quaint and characteristic photo. Pure magic! Congratulations.
Un abrazo caliente

a simple composition very rich in content, details, history and stories. I like very much the light and colour management, the superbly sharp textures, the depth you've allowed and the timeless and fascinating atmosphere. Very effective work, congratulations and thank you!
